Everyone looks back on the past year a little differently. For me, it was all about food. Garlicy seafood, melty gelato, fluffy pancakes, velvety gnocchi…it’s hard to pinpoint that perfect bite or meal. But what I do remember were the restaurants that blew me away.

Both new and old classics stood out to me. The shockingly fresh sushi at Momotaro. The laid back vibe and addictive cocktails at mfk. restaurant. The Angry Crab’s eat-with-your-hands style approach to seafood. The perfect-every-time brunch at Hot Chocolate.

Of course, one of the big standouts to me was Monteverde (pictured top), for its freshly made pasta, addictive bite-sized appetizers and surprising desserts. The menu was seasonal and unique, not your usual Italian.
