OTHER NOMINEES: Bar Breton, Peaches, Pomme de Terre

What remains of the riverside Brooklyn neighborhood of Vinegar Hill has been put on the map anew, thanks to the homespun charm of this recent tenant. In a refreshing twist, chef and co-owner Jean Adamson, previously of Freemans, has made the hearth, not the hype, this destination's focus. The oft-changing menu has brought forth an earthy butternut squash tart, silky chicken liver pt and other staples that keep a line of locals and visitors reliably snaking out the door. Vinegar Hill House 72 Hudson Ave between Front and Water Sts, Dumbo, Brooklyn (718-522-1018)
