In addition to restaurants (and shops and hotels and spas) we also feature drinking establishments in our New and Notable section. If you like to drink as much as you like to eat, check out our favorite new spots of 2012.
If you need a late-night drink in the Gold Coast, this is the place to go.
One of the hottest restaurants in town. You have to order the pizzas - they mill all of their own flour in the basement. It's a scene, so don't expect a quiet conversation, but you definitely won't be bored.
You may not be able to hear yourself think, but the food and cocktails (by the Tippling Bros) make it all worth it.
The cocktails are worth the trip over to the west side. Gin is king at this bar.
One of the best openings of 2012. Make sure to get the Kale salad and the sweetbreads.
Every dish at Homestead has something from their huge rooftop garden. When it reopens in the spring, don't skip the cocktails by mixologist Revae Schneider.
The most romantic space to open this year. I'll be hiding by the fireplace with a glass of bubbly and my boyfriend come the first snow of the year.
I didn't know what low country southern food was until I went here. Wonderful seafood, great cocktails.
Amazing, breathtaking space. Order the fried squash blossoms and try to get into the room with the great big band. The cocktail menu is extensive and not to be missed.
Classic atmosphere, classic cocktails and classic american dishes. Relax and pretend it is 1950.
