IMHO:

Best New Places:
Tie between the Cookery & Melt

Best Single Menu Item:
Tie between Harvest Supper's Blueberry Pancake/Bacon/Foie Gras Dish &
Whitby Castle's Lobster & Shrimp Pot Pie

Most Over-hyped New Place That Failed to Deliver:
Bedford Post Inn with close runner's up: Comfort, Frankie & Fannuci's, the Barnacle

      I so agree about the potato gratin at Vox - had that a couple of weeks ago and I have to say that is the best potato gratin I have ever eaten.

      I agree with The Cookery.
      My favorite single menu item in Westchester this year was the short rib ravioli appetizer at X20.

        To best new places, I would add Shiraz.
        Completely agree on F & F -- slick, overhyped and mediocre at best.

          Agree on the dish from Harvest Supper being great, but they aren't in Westchester...

            Ok I will edit it to read Westchester & Fairfield...speaking of which Osetra in SONO is deserving of a nod as well!

            Agreed on the Cookery, and I think their lamb bolognese also deserves a vote for best single menu item.
