10 Restaurants That Made 2016 Yummier
As 2016 comes to a close (thank you, God), we’re doing a round up of all our faves from this year. Food, of course, as always, is on top of our minds. We’ve seen some fascinating food trends taking over the internet and our plates this year, and now it’s time to list out some of the best restaurants we’ve eaten at. If we were to curate a list of every new restaurant launched in 2016, the end of 2017 would arrive and we’d still not be done. So, we picked our favourites, some because of their vibrant décor, other because of the kickass food. All in all, even if you have been to just one of these restaurants, your year has been a good one. If you haven’t yet…well, book a table now!
