It is that time of the year where everyone with a food obsession reflects on all of the delicious meals they had in the past 12 Months and regurgitates these findings back in the form of a “best of” List. This is, without a doubt, the toughest post to create especially with so much time elapsed between one unforgettable food adventure to another. It may have taken a great deal of debating between Jose and I, but I’m confident that this list best reflects our favorite food experiences of the year.
Like years in the past we have broken this Year’s roundup into a few sections.
1. Our favorite 20 bites of the year: These are standout dishes that lingered in out mind with permanence, be it a incredible airy piece of bread or a decadent dish of Liebre a la Royale. Each one of the 20 joyfully brought together our brain and stomach into one bite.
2. Our top 5 Favorite Destination Dining Experiences: As many of you know we are endlessly searching for the total dining experience one that holds together from start to finish. These are special places where the diners are surrounded by the true essence of a cuisine which is effortlessly carried through to the design of the space, the tableware and to the environment in which the restaurant sits. Trust me…All 5 are worth the trip!
3. Our Top go-to places: If we were addicts (which I guess in some ways we are 🙂 these 7 places would be our drugs. All seven of these spots have a special place in our heart, without them we would no doubt be lost. What is it about them you ask? They all have soul and a strong sense of self, they are all easy/casual and they all serve up damn good food!
