Our pals at Eater PDX have asked a number of food writers in town, myself included, about their favorite restaurants, meals, etc. of the year. I hate being asked to describe anything in one word, but otherwise it's worth taking a look at if you need help deciding where to splurge on a nice dinner (or where you might bro down with Ben Waterhouse or Byron Beck). If nothing else, the anonymous comments are funny (for the record, I'm pretty sure my sister reads all my columns, and my editor has at least skimmed a few of them).

You can read all of the responses here, and If memory serves me, there are still a few more categories to come.
