  • The Urbanspoon list of America's Most Popular New Restaurants spans 37 metros across 22 states, representing both inexpensive treats and high-end eateries. Florida topped the list, claiming half a dozen spots, from a taqueria to a modern American tavern, followed by Tennessee where pizza and burger joints reigned supreme.

    Urbanspoon released its list of America's Most Popular New Restaurants of 2012, highlighting the 50 most sought-after restaurants across the U.S. to open this year. The notable eateries that made the cut were restaurants opened in 2012 that received the most coverage and reviews from professional food critics, bloggers, the Urbanspoon community, and diners.

    "Standing out among the crop of new restaurants that open every year is no small feat," said Kara Nortman, SVP of Consumer Businesses, CityGrid Media. "From small plates in Milwaukee to Korean food in Kentucky, the cuisine is wide-ranging but this year's most lauded restaurants share one thing in common -- an enthusiastic response from critics and diners alike."

    The Urbanspoon list of America's Most Popular New Restaurants spans 37 metros across 22 states, representing both inexpensive treats and high-end eateries. Florida topped the list, claiming half a dozen spots, from a taqueria to a modern American tavern, followed by Tennessee where pizza and burger joints reigned supreme. Missouri and Pennsylvania each earned four nods for flavors ranging from BBQ to Thai. Whether they were digging into the lavish foie gras at Chicago's Au Cheval or chowing down on a juicy Cuban sandwich at Pittsburgh's grab-and-go Bluebird Kitchen, Americans proved their taste buds and dining preferences are as diverse as ever.
