Here were are. In July. Half the year behind us. But to this list, it's another month of new restaurants. We saw two restaurants coming back for triumphant returns: Break of Dawn and The North Left (Née The Crosby).
But you know what was the most popular opening this month judging by the number of page views and Facebook likes? Another donut ice-cream joint. It might take another half year before any of us tire of donut ice-cream joints...and that's fine by me. Bring more on!
