NEW YORK—At a grand bash in Manhattan on Monday, the winners of the 2011 Eater Awards were announced and included Next as restaurant of the year and Spiaggia's Sarah Grueneberg as chef of the year.
ANDERSONVILLE—Big Jones chef/owner Paul Fehribach likes old food, well actually, old recipes and recently released a new menu with classic Southern dishes, some dating back to the 1700s.
WEST LOOP—If you like your burgers fresh and made hormone free, check out Angela Lee's newest restaurant, Grange Hall Burger Bar, in her former Veerasway space. From this gallery, you'd never know it was an Indian restaurant.
