Dozens of restaurants opened in the past year. With 12 months under their belt, which ones are still churning on all gears? In short, what are the best new restaurants in Atlanta?  

My fellow dining critics Wyatt Williams and Elizabeth Lenhard and I set out on this project with just one thing in mind: to determine the top new dining options in metro Atlanta. To us, that means a clear concept and strong, consistent execution. There was no requisite number of establishments, despite how convenient it may have been to come up with some nice, round number. Any restaurant — from highbrow to food stall — that opened in the metro area since Feb. 1, 2016, was up for consideration.
