1. Helen Greek Food & Wine
2. SaltAir Seafood Kitchen
3. Saltillo Mexican Kitchen

5. Oporto Fooding & Wine House
6. The Treadsack 3: Hunky Dory, Bernadine's & Foreign Correspondents
7. Peska Seafood Culture
8. State of Grace
9. Weights & Measures
10. Bramble
11. Southern Goods

She also cites some reincarnates/rebirths that were  notable for 2015. "In a year when some iconic restaurants were reborn in new-and-improved locations - among them Killen's Steakhouse, MF Sushi, Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, Gatlin's BBQ, Corkscrew BBQ and Asia Market - I've confined myself to new concepts rather than the exciting reboots or brand expansions that might have tempted me in thin years past."
