NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Bon Appétit unveiled The Hot 10: America's Best New Restaurants 2017. The annual list is now available in the September issue and on bonappetit.com.
Taking the top spot is New Orleans' Turkey and the Wolf, a quirky, nostalgic, counter service–only sandwich spot. It joins past winners like Atlanta's Staplehouse (2016), San Francisco's AL's Place (2015), and Washington, D.C.'s Rose's Luxury (2014).
"Turkey and the Wolf serves the best sandwich I've ever crammed into my mouth, with a mastery of flavors and textures way beyond what you might expect from this fun, unconventional, casual joint," says deputy editor Andrew Knowlton. "Ultimately, what makes every sandwich—every dish—here so special is that it tells a very personal story. Turkey and the Wolf was the best restaurant we ate in all year."
Other noteworthy spots on the list include Raleigh's dim sum/flower shop mashup Brewery Bhavana, Philadelphia's members only Italian-American eatery Palizzi Social Club, and new-school Chinese restaurant Mister Jiu's in San Francisco. Bon Appétit also crowns Chicago the Restaurant City of the Year, and reveals the best drink and dessert of 2017.
"This year's list is the most eclectic and culturally diverse one we've ever compiled," says special projects editor Julia Kramer. "After a combined 99 days on the road, their meals stuck with us the longest. These are the places you want to go back to multiple times."
