12 Most Outstanding Restaurants of 2014 named


GQ has announced The 12 Most Outstanding Restaurants of 2014 in the March issue.


Alan Richman eats his was across America and discovers the best restaurants that slake our appetite, romance the hell out of us and provide us with a sense of promise and possibility. He compiles a list of the twelve must-visit restaurants that make for a perfect night out. Taking the list's top honors is Austin's Qui, a high-end restaurant with Asian and Texan influences on the east side of Austin that Richman dubs, "the most fascinating new restaurant in America."

Other restaurants that made the list include the re-invigorated Italian-American spot, Carbone, in New York, Los Angeles' unconventional Trois Mec, and Nashville's Husk for transforming southern comfort food.

The 12 Most Outstanding Restaurants of 2014 are:

  1. Qui (Austin, TX)
    Tasty Texan and uplifted Asian cooking on the other side of Austin
  2. Trois Mec (Los Angeles, CA)
    A little piece of Paris in an L.A. strip mall
  3. Roe (Portland, OR)
    A mostly seafood Japanese gem, hiding in plain sight behind another mostly seafood spot
  4. Carbone (New York, NY)
    The Little Italy–style joint you dreamed of discovering, right down to the veal parm
  5. King + Duke (Atlanta, GA)
    Where there's smoke, there's grilling, as all-American as a slab of swordfish
  6. Husk (Nashville, TN)
    Pork, oysters, grits, bourbon – all the best of southern cooking, elevated to a new level
  7. Gunshow (Atlanta, GA)
    They come bearing food, one cook after another – nobody can resist so much charm
  8. Orsa & Winston (Los Angeles, CA)
    Everything imaginable – plus Uruguayan rice
  9. Dover (Brooklyn, NY)
    The re-invigoration of fine dining for a new kind of customer
  10. Nico Osteria (Chicago, IL)
    Sometimes all you want is Italian food, exactly what you love
  11. Sir and Star at The Olema (Olema, CA)
    A coastal bounty of old-fashioned taste
  12. Bar Sajor (Seattle, WA)
    Laid-back but sophisticated – a damn good place for a romantic night
