The best new restaurants around the country

It’s that time of year again, when we eat our way across the country in “search of the best new restaurants,” said Andrew Knowlton in Bonappetit.com.

It’s that time of year again, when we eat our way across the country in “search of the best new restaurants,” said Andrew Knowlton in Bonappetit.com. The dining options we favored ranged from “casual places with communal tables to high-end, white-tablecloth affairs.” Most of all, it was good to see that, after a few rough years for the food business, “the American restaurant scene is alive and well, and more delicious than ever.”

Laurelhurst MarketPortland, Ore. “Part steakhouse, part butcher shop, 100 percent ode to all things meat”—this beef-centric eatery serves cuts like culotte (aka baseball steak), and portions out creamed corn made with locally grown ears. 3155 E. Burnside St., (503) 206-3097

Miller Union Atlanta  The “Southern meat-and-three tradition” gets a twist at this farm-to-table spot, where instead of heavy servings, there’s “a light but satisfying” selection of farm-fresh meats and veggies. Likewise, the typical “dusty décor” has been replaced by a “modern farmhouse feel.” 999 Brady Ave., (678) 733-8550

Menton Boston Chef Barbara Lynch’s latest restaurant makes clear that “fine dining is in fact not dead in America.” She marries “French technique and Italian sensibility” in both the seven-course chef’s tasting menu and a four-course prix fixe in which “shellfish is the star.” 354 Congress St., (617) 737-0099
