Adam Platt on Where to Eat in 2011

Mile End's smoked meat.

In this week's magazine, Adam Platt puts together his annual list of where to eat in the coming year — and it's a monster. There's a look at old-school-style Italian food; tasting menus; the rise of Portuguese cuisine; high-stakes openings; beef's comeback; the glory of vegetables; food halls; Brooklyn's Southern leanings; the best breakfasts; and gourmet sandwiches. But he doesn't stop there.

Platt also rounds up the best new restaurants, cocktails, chefs, and desserts of the year. And, of course, there's a list of all the things nobody needs to see in 2011.
