7x7's Big Eat 2012: Give Us Your Feedback Now!

One of the 2011 additions: garlic pretzels from Absinthe.

While you might all be thinking about this glorious Indian summer day. I'm sitting here wringing my hands about the impending winter—specifically the 2012 Big Eat, our annual 100-things-you-have-to-eat-or-drink-before-you-die bucket list. Though it might not be on the newstands until late January 2012, I have to get it done in the next month or so. This is the life of print.

Luckily, the internet allows me the immediate satisfaction of culling your suggestions right now for what dishes you think should be included in the upcoming Big Eat. For 2011's list, there were 30 new dishes added (such as these completely addictive garlic pretzels with cheese sauce that I discovered one night at Absinthe). And thus, 30 subtracted to make room.

Let me know what you think should go on next year's list. And in turn, let me know what you think is tired and should be ditched. I'm always aiming for a balanced world view made up of dishes from old-school establishments and hot spots, hole-in-the-walls and fine dining restaurants.

Remember, the Big Eat needs to include dishes that are regularly on the menu at restaurants within San Francisco's city limits. Beyond that, the rules are few and far between.

Please give me your thoughts in the comment box below. I can't tackle this without your help!
