This year Brno made the list.  It came in at #27!!  Here's the write up by Evan Rail.

   27.  Brno, Czech Republic
Known mostly for its minimalist architecture, the Czech Republic's second city is finally starting to earn praise for its food and drink, with last year's new bars "Super Panda Circus" and "Lucky Bastard Beerhouse" joining the revered three-year old "Bar, Který Neexistuje" (The Bar Which Doesn't Exist).  Stylish new restaurants like "Simplé", "Pavillon", "Il Mercato" and "Koishi" offer pitch-perfect takes on French, American, Japanese and regional Italian cooking, among others, while third-wave coffeehouses "Coffee Fusion" and "Cafe Mitte" make it easy for overnight guests from nearby Prague and Vienna to shake off the excess of the previous evening on their way to the remarkable "Villa Tugendhat".
