These eateries lie directly in the Path of Totality cast by the Moon's shadow.
If you think dinner is best enjoyed with a side of an astrological phenomenon, then OpenTable has you covered. The restaurant reservations website has put together a list of the best places to eat your dinner and watch the solar eclipse on August 21 at the same time. The total solar eclipse is happening for the first time in 99 years (it's such a big deal that Krispy Kreme has even created a donut in the eclipse's honor), so if you plan to eat a delicious meal along with this once-in-lifetime experience, you might want to book soon.
Sip wine as the sun darkens the strip of land ominously called the Path of Totality at these restaurants, located directly in the shadow cast by the eclipse, and that promise the best view of the skies:
