It was the year that was … and here are a few of my favorite things

December 27, 2013

These are a few of my favorite things…

When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I’m feeling sad…

I’m thinking about the best bites I put in my mouth during this year.

OK, let’s start with the bone marrow at Colt & Gray, really the best.

And we’ll segue to the proscuitto wrapped melon at Capital Grille.

What else? The best carpaccio made by chef Sean Yontz no matter where he was.

Any pasta dish at Shells and Sauce.

Mexican food at La Fiesta, Zocalo or Mexico City Lounge.

A sandwich at Masterpiece Delicatessen, which opened in my ‘hood but I still haven’t tried.

Racines either Mexicali Salad or Cheesy nutty salad. Beyond the best!

A buffalo cheeseburger at City Grille cooked perfectly medium rare. What’s better than that?

Dim sum at The Empress. Westword Editor and co-founder Patty Calhoun and I love the variety of dumplings and meat options: duck or barbecued pork?

And a partridge in a pear tree…
