What was your favorite new restaurant of last year?
I'd also like to hear about your favorite "new to you" restaurant, not just "new in 2005" places. (Me, I almost never remember when a place opens, and time passes so quickly these days!)
To start things off, here are my favorite discoveries of last year:
New: El Gaucho Argentinian Grill - the sweetbreads and flap steak are amazing!
New-to-me: Rice Paper (I *finally* made it over to Linden Hills) - I dream about the spicy grapefruit salad.
