Four Burlington restaurants have made the grade for offering healthy food choices.

The inaugural list compiled by OpenTable, an online reservation and review service, used data retrieved through 2,000 surveys and over one million dining reviews, to indicate the restaurants throughout the country where customers indicated healthy food choices were available.

As well, according to OpenTable, the list follows the desires of people to seek out healthy food options when they dine out in 2024.

OpenTable indicates that people often struggle to find healthy menu items and that the list should act as a guide to show customers that they do have choices in their community.

There are 100 restaurants on the list from coast-to-coast and the list is in no particular order.

Here are the Burlington restaurants that are on the list with a brief description of each provided by OpenTable:
