Ever had dinner underwater? How about halfway up the Eiffel Tower, or in a Michelin star chef’s village pub? In 2019, you can – thanks to a clutch of incredible new restaurants, markets and other food destinations opening around the world.
We’re super excited to be opening five new Time Out Markets this year, in Miami, New York, Boston, Chicago and Montreal, bringing the best of the city under one roof just as we’ve been doing in Lisbon since 2014. And with this in mind, we thought we’d take a look at what other essential food openings are taking place across the globe this year. So we asked dozens of Time Out editors and contributors – each one an expert in their local food scene – for the most incredible and spectacular eateries opening in their city or region this year, and selected the very best for this feature. Some of them might even end up on The Time Out EAT List, our city-by-city guide to the world’s best restaurants. For now, unbuckle that belt: 2019 is looking like a tasty year for travellers.
As usual with restaurants, all opening dates are approximate and subject to change.
