Zagat GuideZagat  recently released its annual “America’s Top Restaurants” report and two Heartland Food Network member restaurants, Oceanaire and Cosmos are featured. The guide covers over 1,500 restaurants across the country and ratings are based on the opinions of diners.

In addition to rating restaurants, diners also shared their opinions on how the economy has impacted their dining out habits.  Respondents report that they are eating out less and paying more attention to the price of their meals.  With customers being more selective about how theyHFNlogoFINAL spend their money, many report improvements in their dining experiences. 40% of the respondents feel their patronage is more appreciated and 22% say that service has improved.

In addition, there is great news for members of the Heartland Food Network.  There was a significant  increase in the value put on “green dining”.  According to the report, 61% of the surveyors are willing to pay more for “green” products and menu items.  This is an increase from the 5% who were willing to pay more just last year.
