    We hope you have a healthy dining-out budget, because 2015 is shaping up to be a blockbuster year for restaurant openings. Even the typically slow month of January is already seeing some newness. This year will mark a bunch of personal and very chef-driven projects, with culinary talents opening everything from intimate boîtes to bigger, splashier establishments — with some sophomore efforts and second locations in the mix, too.

    Chinatown is going to gain a couple new destination-worthy projects, and you’ll see a number of chefs exploring their heritage on a deeper level. Here are 18 spots that are at the top of our to-watch list. One big question lurks: How are all these places going to find enough staff? All will be revealed in time — including even more new projects, of course. Yes, you’re going to be busy.
