Following this morning’s breaking story of Luce’s Dominique Crenn winning Esquire’s Chef of the Year award, as well as Luce itself getting on the magazine’s 20-strong Best New Restaurants list, we’re pleased to bring you the complete list, which we’re posting after the jump.
As further proof to what we all knew — that magazine editors put together these lists based on what rhymes — Spruce joins Luce in the San Francisco contingent.
Again, congratulations to Crenn, Luce, and now Spruce.

Mansion on Turtle Creek, Dallas
