Krieger, 10/1/09

GQ's resident restaurant critic Alan Richman files a biggie today as part of the January issue, as he drops his annual list of the country's 10 best new restaurants. New York City's upscale seafood palace Marea gets the top spot on the list, and with it, a hefty Richman declaration about its chef: "All quite sumptuous, but primary credit for the glorious ascension belongs to Michael White, now America's top Italian chef." Boom.

The complete top 10:

1. Marea, New York City
2. Craigie on Main, Cambridge, Massachusetts
3. The Bazaar, Los Angeles
4. Ping, Portland, Oregon
5. Anchovies & Olives, Seattle ("The best empty restaurant I've ever seen")
6. Aldea, New York City
7. Bibou, Philadelphia
8. 54 Mint, San Francisco
9. The Bristol, Chicago
10. Serpas, Atlanta
