The online restaurant reservations website, OpenTable, just announced their picks for the 100 most scenic restaurants in America and one of their choices is in Mercer County.  Hamilton, NJ to be exact.

Rat's Restaurant at Grounds For Sculpture is one of 3 New Jersey restaurants to make the list, but the only one in Mercer County.  (The others were in Weehawken and Cape May).

According to Rat's website, the restaurant "was conceptually designed by sculptor Seward Johnson, with an Impressionist Claude Monet-styled atmosphere."  The unusual name comes from a character in one of Johnson's favorite books, The Wind in the Willows.

Other area restaurants to make the list include Black Bass Hotel in Bucks County and Parc in Philadelphia.
