For his annual Hot 10 list, Andrew Knowlton dined at hundreds of restaurants, traveled thousands of miles, and devoured something like a million calories—all in search of the country’s best new places to eat. Here are the breakout spots you should be planning your next trip around.

10. Milktooth, Indianapolis

Milktooth is all about the art of brunch. A daytime-only shrine to putting an egg on it proves that brunch can—no, should—be the most interesting, inspiring, and ridiculously delicious meal of the day.

9. Manolin, Seattle

Manolin reeled us in. The star of the menu at this dream seafood spot isn’t the daily catch, it’s the seasonal mole—a mysterious sauce with more ingredients than we can remember.

8. Rintaro, San Francisco

Rintaro, you are charming. East (Japan) meets West (California) at this izakaya, where it’s all about the details, from the rice (made every 45 minutes) to the hand-hewn cedar bar.

7. Kindred, Davidson, NC

Kindred is all about sharing the love (and the food). Here’s the pitch: Young couple move back to husband’s tiny hometown to open a restaurant. Turns out they’re not just running a business—they’re building a community.

6. Dai Due, Austin

At Dai Due, meat is king. Chef Jesse Griffiths is also a butcher but unlike most of his pork-obsessed brethren, his favorite meat to work with is also America’s favorite to eat: chicken.

5. Parachute, Chicago

Parachute is soaring high. At this Korean mom-and-pop shop gone delectably rogue, the only traditional thing about the bibimbap is the bowl its served in.
