Esquire's Best New Restaurants in America, 2023

Recommended Posts

Well, obviously it's a time for lists, as 2023 draws to a close. I'm not a big fan of lists, but since someone already broke the ice, what the heck?! Though I wonder - what if a chef/restaurateur opens a restaurant in December? Why shouldn't that count? Why not wait until 2024 to enlighten us with what was best in 2023? Anyway, I digress...

 

I haven't eaten at Mads' newest, which tops Esquire's list, but I hope to at some point soon.  I like Mads (and even got to work with him once), like his food, like his philosophy about food and no waste. So Ilis is definitely on my list - of places to try. As to the other local (to me) places, I've been to two of them multiple times - they're quite good and are places where spending money doesn't hurt, as it can when one has a bad meal, or receives bad service somewhere else.  That is - they know what they're doing and they understand that the restaurant business is about taking care of customers properly; not every restaurant can say that!

Not sure I'm dying to tuck my toes under the table with this group, the article's feature shot.

I like to plop my toes onto the table.

To expound, I loathe when people keep their hats on inside restaurants, and I loathe even more when people keep their baseball caps on inside restaurants, and when they're on backwards, well - take them out back and dispose of them (the people, not the caps).

 

AND DON'T PUT YOUR HAT ON THE FUCKING BAR!

I'm wondering which restaurant is the one in the opening picture.

 

Looks like this one. Nonno's in Houston.   Doesn't seem like it's on the list though. 

Edited to add that this article says they got a mention for pizza.
