DALLAS (KDAF) — Everyone has a go-to restaurant in almost every city in the U.S. you’ve visited and especially in the area you call home base. So, why not try a new spot?

Boy, oh boy, do we have a list for you. Bon Appetit has recently released a report of the 50 best new restaurants in 2022, “Nigerian fine dining in Brooklyn, Asian American pastries in Cincinnati, West Texas cuisine in Lubbock, unrivaled bagels in Philly, and so many more exciting meals.”

The publication released this report with the intention of helping everyone out as they’ve put the restaurants within their specific regional landing spots (Northeast/Mid-Atlantic, South, Midwest & West). It’s also nice to know that Texas is well represented with spots all around the Lone Star State.

“I hope this list, divided by region and filled with our thoughts on what to order and what to know, acts as an invitation to shake off any skepticism as to whether going out is “worth it” these days. If you’re spending money to eat out, nothing is more worthwhile than a trip to one of these 50 restaurants.”
