3 Seattle Restaurants are Nominees for Bon Appetit's Best New Restaurants

The communal table at Joule is a fine place to dine

In a run-up to announcing their Top 10 Best New Restaurants in the country, Bon Appetit has given us a peek at the 50 restaurants they whittled their list from. This longer list (from which final 10 will be chosen; look for that list in their huge-looking Best Restaurants Issue in September) includes three Seattle restaurants: Bar Sajor (which I review in our upcoming September issue), Joule, and the Whale Wins.

To my surprise, Mamnoon is not on the list. I said yesterday that I feel it's absolutely one of the best local restaurants to open this year.

"Guessing @bonappetit @AndrewOKnowlton names Mamnoon 1 of country's 10 Best New Restaurants in their Sept issue. What say you, #Seattle?" (@allisonscheff) August 7, 2013

So what's your take? Pretty good choices? Or did they miss your favorite new place?
