Top 10 List

Any entry on this list would be well worth repeating.

Every Monday, Food of the Week celebrates my favorite dish from the previous seven days.

Looking back, here are my 10 favorite dishes from 2014.

Numbered establishments on the map correspond to information below for easy reference.

That pasta by Jonathan Sawyer was really fantastic.

Mattatouille, Very cool that we both got to experience Jonathon Sawyer’s pasta, and the tomato agadashi. Hopefully 2015 will be just as flavorful for both of us.
