Best New Restaurant (Opened In Last 12 Months)
With so many restaurants opening during the past 12 months, this category was tough. An early favorite was Fiamma, but then Terra took on a new owner, Thierry Garconnet. Before long, the place became the quintessential small, locally owned neighborhood eatery serving unpretentious but well-crafted Eurofare, with an excellent service team. After a rash of grandiose chains coming to town, Terra is the proverbial breath of fresh air — or earth, as the case may be.
