Best new restaurants of 2009

Seeing as we are now in 2010, I thought this might be a good time to gather the collected wisdom of the hounds and pull together a list of the best restaurants to open in 2009.

What are your picks?

          I hadn't heard of Rizzo's before, but looking at the menu, it sounds good. I love that the only have 3 items ( I'll have to check it out:
          Here at Rizzo's, we serve one thing; French Dips. Every sandwich comes with a side of macaroni salad, made fresh daily from Grandma Dinah's recipe.

          The Original (no cheese).......... $7.00
          Cheese (American or Swiss).... $ .75
          Soda (can) or Water (bottle)..... $1.00

          Ocean City
          Taste Unique (though it is mostly take-out)
          Al Forno Ferruzza
          Red Onion
