…..There will always be an ongoing debate about which city has the best bars, and then within those cities which bar stands out from the rest. And occasionally someone who’s opinion is well respected makes a list of some of the best bars and then we sit back and dissect and discuss. This was the case when recently Kate Krader, restauarant editor for Food & Wine magazine had the chance to speak with Jim Meehan (Startender), who gave a list of what he considers the 10 best new bars in the country:
Canon (Seattle, Washington)
The NoMad Hotel (New York City)
The Barrelhouse Flat (Chicago, Illinois; pictured above)
Pour Vous (Los Angeles, California)
The Hawthorne (Boston, Massachusetts)
Williams & Graham (Denver, Colorado)
Woodsman Tavern (Portland, Oregon)
Bellocq (New Orleans, Louisiana)
Scott & Co. (Tucson, Arizona)
Midnight Cowboy (Austin, Texas)
