Ten Best New South Florida Restaurants in 2014, So Far

Like your significant other, a bad cold, and that last five pounds you're always battling, restaurants come and go. In South Florida, where the summer slump after tourist season can often be a kiss of death for many establishments, this is especially true.

Each year, we wave goodbye to those that didn't make it for the long haul. And this year, there were a few concepts we'll really miss. Think Ceviche in Delray Beach, the Little House in Boynton Beach, and Canale in Fort Lauderdale.

But, lucky for us, a number of new restaurants have opened -- many within the past few months -- in anticipation of the return of season and all the tourists and snowbirds it brings with it.

From trendy barbecue eateries to Asian-inspired fare, even a hot new ramen spot, this year has already delivered a wide variety of new concepts. We're happy to welcome each and every one, but a list is a finite thing; we could pick only ten out of the dozens that sprouted up over the past 365 days.

So, here they are: the best new restaurants of 2014 -- so far.
