Top 10 New Restaurants in the U.S.

At GAYOT.com, we take pride in bringing you up-to-the-moment news about restaurant openings, and review them as soon as we can to let you know if they’re worth your time and hard-earned money. These ten restaurants, which all opened within the last twelve months, represent the best of the rookie class. Two of our favorites are actually re-openings in new locations, while a third is so well-regarded, that it made our top steakhouse list.
