We could make arguments for a number of spots, but we’re going to leave the voting to you.

You’ll see we left out all establishments mentioned in the Best New Restaurant poll, even though Fiola serves some of the most sophisticated cocktails in town, and the live country music at Hill Country and vintage video games at Virtue Feed & Grain could warrant inclusion in this list. If you love ‘em, write ‘em in.
