This year, Chef Andres Fernandez of Ariana
won the Source's best chef honors
, and in early 2014 the chefs of Ariana were invited to cook for the James Beard Foundation, an unprecedented honor for Bend chefs.
So it's already been a good year for the restaurant. And it's only getting better. Ariana just announced that it has been named one of the top 100 restaurants in the nation by diners who use Open Table, a website that helps foodies make reservations at upscale restaurants the nation over. The list of winners is derived from more than 5 million reviews submitted by Open Table diners for more than 20,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Congratulations to Ariana for taking Bend dining to the next level.
