Correction: The Zagat list refers to "New French" restaurants as in their type of cuisine, not their opening date.

A new list of "5 Best New French Restaurants in the Boston Area" by Zagat has just one little problem: none of the restaurants are new. In fact, one opened in the seventies. Here's the breakdown.

Lumiere: opened in Newton in 1999.
T.W. Food: opened in Cambridge in 2007
L'Espalier: opened on Boylston Street in 1978, moved in 1982 and again in 2008.
Clio: opened at The Eliot Hotel in Back Bay in 1997.
Radius: opened in the Financial District in 1998.
