This morning, Bon Appetit released their big list of the 50 Best New Restaurants In America. And man, it is one hell of a list. We’re talking Blackbird Chinese in Miami, Lusca and Kevin Gillespie’s Gunshow in Atlanta, Hot Joy in San Antonio, Chicago’s Mott Street, Odd Duck in Austin, Q in L.A., and so many more.
Philly made a game of it, too, with not just one of our best tagged by Andrew Knowlton and his team, but two–Eli Kulp’s High Street On Market and Peter Serpico’s Serpico on South Street. You guys can all start arguing now about whether or not these are the two best new restaurants that have opened in Philly in the past year, who should’ve really gotten the nod and whether its weird that both of our nominees came to our fair city from New York, but I think we can all agree that High Street and Serpico are certainly among the best of a strong crop.
This list of 50 will be winnowed down to 10 big winners over the next couple weeks. But you can check out the full list/slideshow right now over at Bon Appetit and start arranging your bucket list for the next year.
