Ruppert Recommendations

This is an evolving list, and in no way implies that we will not revisit the other places we have blogged about.  This list includes things rated 8 and above by one or more reviewers with no ratings below 8.  In fact, I think if we went back and considered our ratings for places we went early on in the process, we might change our minds about the ratings.  We have a better sense of what it means to be a 7, an 8, etc. now than when we started.  We are not professional critics, and these are definitely biased opinions.

Places that have closed are removed from this list.
