Q: What are the top restaurant newcomers of 2012?

Chelsea Olson, Miami Editor, Eater Miami: The Federal, Blue Collar, Khong River House, Florida Cookery

Frodnesor, of Food For Thought: A Miami Food Blog: The Bazaar by José Andrés, Florida Cookery

Ryan Roman, of Miami's Restaurant Power Rankings: Blue Collar, Josh's Delicatessan & Appetizing, and My Ceviche. The Federal is another highlight, along with the reincarnation of NAOE, the temporary-to-permanent Eating House, and sneaking in just under the wire, MC Kitchen in the Design District.

Cari Garcia, of Fatgirl Hedonist: Blue Collar, Josh's Delicatassen & Appetizing, The Federal, The Bazaar. And although I haven't been, Eating House is wildly popular.

Steven, of Chowfather: The Bazaar wins this easily. Newly opened MC Kitchen and Florida Cookerymaking some noise as of late.

Aleksandra Marcotte: Not a newcomer, but version 2.0 - NAOE; The Broken Shaker, at the helm of roving gourmet Chef Jeremiah Bullfrog; Florida Cookery by Red Light toque Chef Kris Wessel
