We are always sad to see restaurants close, but we are always happy to see more opening to please our palates. For the 2011 Restaurant Issue, we have selected 10 new restaurants that opened in 2010 and for which we foresee a great future, either for their cuisine, ambience, location, or a combination of all three.

Watch my exclusive video interview with chef David Myers who made the list for his French brasserie Comme Ca, which opened at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in December.

The other awards listed in the 2011 Restaurant Issue are:
Top 40 Restaurants in the U.S., Nine of these did not appear on last year’s list, and three of those are gracing the list for the very first time,
U.S. Restaurateur of the Year

5 Rising Chefs – American chefs under 30 who are making their mark
Top 10 Steakhouses in the U.S. – which celebrity chefs make the best steak?
Top 10 Hotel Restaurants in the U.S. – Only 3 remain from last year
