There’s the relocated Lebanese restaurant named after one of the chef’s eight children. There’s the last remaining restaurant from Arlington’s Little Saigon, now managed by the owners’ son.

And it’s not only because of that tingling buzz flower. Scroll down for more on this year’s best restaurant, plus the full list.
