America’s restaurants really show up in the design department—we’re talking fairytale-inspired gardens, tropical rooftop escapes, and avant-garde art installations—making it difficult to choose just one as most beautiful in each state. But in honor of PEOPLE’s 50th anniversary, the editors at OpenTable and PEOPLE teamed up to crown 50 restaurants as the country’s most beautiful.

These super-stylish stunners deliver unforgettable dining experiences. There are mountaintop chalets with modern rustic touches, glammed-up Art Deco mansions with a view, and mirror-and-glass paneled sky-high stunners. These are our picks for the 50 most beautiful restaurants in the US.
