Year in Eater 2008: Year in One Word

New, 1 comment

As is tradition, the Eater closeout of the year is a survey of industry types, bloggers, media and readers. This year we asked seven questions, from Best Newcomers to Top Standby, and Most Memorable Meals, Biggest Dining Surprises, and Best Dining Neighborhoods have dropped already. The rest will be answered by the time we turn off the lights today. The responses are in no particular order:
