What is the one fave dish you had in the greater boston area this year?

Just one...alright, if that's too hard then just add one more!

for me it was the Crab and silky noodle claypot at Dumpling Cafe.

    1. It would have to be the Gypsy Pancake at Cafe Polonia. Hungarian goulash sandwiched between two large potato pancakes and topped with dollops of sour cream.

      1. The Bucatini Carbonara from Metropolis Cafe in the South End. Amazing sauce, great flavors coming from the egg, cheese, pork, and pasta. Such a great dish.

        1. Organic duck egg sformato with white truffles, aged parmegiano regiano, and marjoram at Erbaluce. EASILY the best thing I had in Boston in 2010.

          In Seville, jamon every day for a week. Cmon now.

            That sublime sformato was a highlight here, too.

            Many good things at Istanbul'lu, too tough to pick just one, but since there's a gun at my head, I'll take the paca (lamb soup).

            Also the da la p'i at Unique has been eternally etched into my brainpan as well.

            Which reminds me of another Boston highlight this year when a Chicago friend came to visit - in addition to the aforementioned dishes, in a single weekend we also had: cocktails at the Franklin, dinner at Estragon, second dinner at Peach Farm, brunch at Istanbulu, oysters at B&G, cocktails at Deep Ellum (twice), dinner at Unique, brunch at Chung Shin Yuan, cocktails at Drink, dinner at YoMa, pizzas at Reginas, beers at Bukowskis, oysters at ECG, dinner at Coppa, and a Speeds dawg, and I think I'm missing a couple of other things.

            If not given the chance to reflect on the year, I might have nominated the chimi I just scarfed from Alex's minutes ago.
