In a strong year for dining, what were the absolute standouts? We asked our contributors to the Resy Hit List to share their top 10 dining experiences from this year in their city — restaurants and meals that left and impression and helped to define the state of American dining right now. Please welcome back our Best of The Hit List. (You can read other cities’ top picks here.)
It’s been a long three years. We’ve watched as some of our favorite restaurants closed, while others miraculously rose from the ashes. In particular, 2022 has felt like the year of once-unrealized dreams made new — from the return of the city’s best Ethiopian, Abyssinian Kitchen, to renewed all-day concepts like Cafe Olli, Canard, and Pacific Standard, to finally-realized restaurant projects like Kann.
Here, then, our absolute favorites as we close out 2022 — 10 spots that defined dining for us in a year of transition. Please welcome our Best of The Hit List.
