Getting hungry?

The January issue is all about the up-and-comers in the Southwest Florida culinary world. It’s our annual 10 Best New Restaurants issue. Congratulations to TAG—The American Gastropub and 7th Avenue Social for being named the best new spots in Lee and Collier counties, respectively.

We featured the newcomers in our Best New Restaurants party last week. But, in case you missed it, we wanted to bring you their best dishes the only other way we could—food photography. So the went back and scoured our photo archives for the most delicious-looking pics of the newbies' cuisine. Here are our top five:
