Bon Appetit sent Andrew Knowlton on a cross-country trip to identify the best new restaurants in America.

Two Philadelphia yearlings have made the list, out today:

  • High Street on Market, where head baker Alex Bois' bread program gets the praise - as it fits beautifully within chef Eli Kulp's three-meals-a-day concept.
  • Serpico, where New York emigre Peter Serpico "manages to marry sophisticated techniques with a dorm-room stoner's idea of flat-out deliciousness."

BA will announce the "hot 10" on Aug. 19. They will be showcased in September's print edition.
