Online restaurant reservation website OpenTable just named RoCA one of the hottest restaurants in America.

The list of 100 eateries nationwide describes the winning restaurants as being “highly regarded for their lively ambiance, and many feature vibrant bar and lounge scenes.”

That certainly describes RoCA, short for Restaurant on Court Avenue, which has made the list the past two years. The restaurant, operating in a 148-year-old building with a mural of Iowa’s own Chris Soules of “The Bachelor” on the side, opened in October 2014 and features a happening bar scene and “locally sourced plates.”

OpenTable culled more than 5 million reviews of 20,000-plus restaurants to determine the 100 hottest places. The big winner? California with 25 restaurants making the list, followed by New York with 15. RoCA is the only restaurant in Iowa to make the cut.
