We are always sad to see restaurants close, but we are always happy to see more opening to please our palates. For the GAYOT.com 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.
