The 10 Best Restaurants in MoCo, According to ChatGPT

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot developed by OpenAI and released in November 2022. We asked it to tell us the “10 best restaurants in Montgomery County, MD.” Three of the restaurants on ChatGPT’s list are no longer open, but the AI chatbot did provide a disclaimer that it doesn’t have access to the most current data. Here’s the response we received:

As an AI language model, I don’t have access to the most current data or information about restaurants in Montgomery County, MD. However, here are ten restaurants that have received high ratings from various sources:

  1. The Grilled Oyster Company – Potomac
  2. Black’s Bar & Kitchen – Bethesda
  3. *Jaleo – Bethesda
  4. Founding Farmers – Potomac
  5. The Daily Dish – Silver Spring
  6. Barrel & Crow – Bethesda
  7. Fish Taco – Bethesda
  8. *The Classics – Silver Spring
  9. The Barking Dog – Bethesda
  10. *Urban Butcher – Silver Spring

Please note that restaurant rankings and popularity can vary depending on personal preferences, and this is not an exhaustive list. It is always best to check current reviews and ratings before making a dining decision.

Grilled Oyster Co., ranked first on the list, has since left Potomac and made the move to Kentlands in Gaithersburg. *Jaleo (Bethesda), ranked third on this list, closed in March and the José Andres restaurant has since rebranded as Spanish Diner. *The Classics (Silver Spring), ranked 8th on this list, opened in 2006 as Ray’s The Classics and rebranded to The Classics in 2013. The restaurant closed in February 2018. *Urban Butcher (Silver Spring) opened in 2013 and announced a temporary closure in 2020 that has since become permanent. Featured photo shows oysters from Grilled Oyster Co.
