Death and Taxes in downtown Raleigh has been named one of Food and Wine magazine's top 10 restaurants of the year.

The annual list features the 10 most exciting new places to eat in America right now, according to the magazine.

"I have no idea how FedEx delivered the 1,900-pound, custom-made-in-Texas grill that is the focus of Ashley Christensen’s gorgeous restaurant (named for its previous lives as both a mortuary and a bank). Christensen has mastered the tricky art of live-fire cooking, using her grill to make everything from insanely good littleneck clams with embered butter to The Pig, an epic pork chop that is brined, braised and then cooked to charred and juicy perfection," the magazine wrote about the restaurant, located at 105 W. Hargett St.

Here's the full list:

  • Brewer's Table at Surly Brewing, Minneapolis
  • Cala, San Francisco
  • Death & Taxes, Raleigh, North Carolina
  • High Street on Hudson, New York City
  • Launderette, Austin
  • Locol, Los Angeles
  • Monteverde Restaurant & Pastificio, Chicago

  • The Dabney, Washington, D.C.
