Chef Bryce Gilmore’s highly anticipated brick-and-mortar version of his trailer that started it all, Odd Duck, finally opened in mid-December, just squeaking onto this list. One of the restaurant's coolest factoids? It is actually housed on the same property as the original trailer. Compared to Gilmore's Barley Swine, Odd Duck is a more casual operation; the focus is on dishes that are less formally plated and presented, and Gilmore told us that “anything goes.” The opening menu featured dishes like carrots roasted in hay with goat feta and pistachio as well as cow tongue with beets, deviled egg and dill pickles.
