So what makes a great restaurant for you? Great food is a must, friendly and efficient service is always needed, great prices, ambiance, and a great cup of coffee? Maybe that's my list but I am sure you probably agree. All these qualities make for a great dining experience. According to Lovefood, "Some of the most memorable food can be found in places where you least expect it – and stumbling across unexpected greatness can make an excellent meal feel like so much more."

So for New Jersey, Lovefood selected a restaurant in Monmouth County as their choice for the best "hidden gem" restaurant in the Garden State. The Belford Bistro was the choice from Lovefood "Run by a chef couple, this quietly amazing neighborhood bistro based in a strip mall produces gourmet-style New American dishes. The inside feels luxe and classy – all white tablecloths and styled lighting  – and the food is high-end, well-balanced fare. Do they make all their pasta fresh in house? You bet they do. A mile-and-a-half from the New York ferry, this is an under-the-radar spot well worth celebrating."

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
