Maybe it's the goodwill of the holiday season, but there were many more openings than closings this month, including some high-profile ones. A true farm-to-table restaurant opened in the mansion that formerly housed Salt, and Ted Kilgore opened his first cocktail bar after leaving Taste last year. Check out our full list after the jump, and as always, let us know anything we missed in the comments.
