Leopold's sausage and kraut (photo by Ed Anderson)
It's been 12 months of good eating. After reviewing all my past blogs, I've pulled out some—though clearly not all—of the most delicious dishes from 2011 and listed them in no particular order. A couple are new discoveries to me (see L'Ardoise), some are rediscoveries (see Kiss), but most are new as of this year.
Enough of the fried chicken, the pizza, the burgers, the deli sandwiches bursting with a half pound of meat, that crazy-delicious kouign amann (finally figured out that this is pronounced queen a'mann) Belinda Leong is making for Four Barrel. Enough with the death-by-straight-booze cocktails. The holidays haven't even hit yet and the food trends in this city are going to kill me.
Where are the salad trucks? I might have to move to LA to recuperate from this year of recession comfort food.
