Our own Andrew Knowlton -- a.k.a. The Foodist -- has been very busy lately. And no, we're not talking about his jaunt to Norway. We're talking about BA's annual Best New Restaurants issue, in which Knowlton chooses his Hot 10 new spots of 2012. This year, we're switching it up a bit, sharing Knowlton's list of 50 Best New Restaurant nominees. The Hot 10 -- including Knowlton's pick for America's Best New Restaurant -- will be revealed August 14th. Until then, chew on these.

Visit Bon Appétit to see the rest of the 2012 nominees.

Imagine a trattoria, gastropub, and sports bar mashup, and you've got chef Marc Vetri's most democratic (and most rollicking) spot to date. Creative comfort food rules here.
