Urbanspoon, a mobile restaurant discovery application and reservation management system, released its list of America's Most Popular New Restaurants of 2012, highlighting the 50 most sought-after restaurants across the U.S. to open this year.

The notable eateries that made the cut were restaurants opened in 2012 that received the most coverage and reviews from professional food critics, bloggers, the Urbanspoon community and diners.

"Standing out among the crop of new restaurants that open every year is no small feat," said Kara Nortman, senior vice president of Consumer Businesses, CityGrid Media. "From small plates in Milwaukee to Korean food in Kentucky, the cuisine is wide-ranging but this year's most lauded restaurants share one thing in common — an enthusiastic response from critics and diners alike."

The Urbanspoon list of America's Most Popular New Restaurants spans 37 metros across 22 states.

A few new pizzerias landed on this year's list, including 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria, in Los Angeles; NYPD – New York Pizza Department in Chattanooga, Tenn.; and Aldo's Pizza Pies in Memphis, Tenn.
