Two Austin restaurants land on Bon Appetit’s 50 Best New Restaurants in America list

Bon Appetit today released its list of the 50 best new restaurants in America, a list they call the Hot 50. Overseen by newly minted Austinite Andrew Knowlton, the list includes Austin spots Sour Duck Market and Suerte. The former is a bakery, cafe and bar from the team behind Odd Duck, while the latter is a masa-loving modern Mexican restaurant from owner Sam Hellman-Mass, also an Odd Duck co-founder, and executive chef Fermin Nuñez. I recently called Suerte the best restaurant to open in Austin this year, granting it a 9.5 rating, and the East Austin restaurant was also recently named one of the 18 best new restaurants in America by Eater national restaurant critic Bill Addison. Bon Appetit will name its final Hot 10 on August 14.
