Florida Trend Dispenses Golden Spoons

Florida Trend's 2009 Dining Guide

is out, with a new editor in chief: Chris Sherman has replaced Robert

Toff as the dispenser of Golden Spoons. This year's guide cites plenty

of South Florida gems among the 20 Best New Restaurants. In Fort

Lauderdale: Christine's and Four Rivers (which has just closed, sadly); in Boca Raton, Morimoto (see John Linn's impressions here); in Miami, Fratelli Lyon, Brosia, Pacific Time, La Marea, and Sardinia; and in West Palm, Forte di Asprinio. There isn't a cluck in the bunch. Congrats to all for kudos well earned.

Among the old faithfuls to win the spoon this year: Arturo's, Johnny V, Cafe Boulud, and Sunfish Grill in Broward Palm Beach; and Michy's, Cacao, Ortanique, Pascal's, North One Ten, Timo, Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove, and OLA in Miami. 

And many of our long-standing favorites entered the Golden Spoon Hall of Fame. List maniacs can see the rest at floridatrend.com.
