Local Dining Experts Sum Up the Year in Just One Word

Distilling an entire year in Twin Cities eating into one utterance

Downstairs inside Graze food hall, lots of seats and a stairway to the second floor

John Yuccas/Eater Twin Cities

Jess Fleming of the Pioneer Press, “Shifting.”

Sharyn Jackson of the Star Tribune, “Dynamic.”

Mike Marcotte of Twin Cities Live, “Forgettable.”

Sarah Bumble and Em Cassel of City Pages, “‘Rattled’ or maybe ‘foodhall’ (we’re going with the latter’s German spelling, okay?)”

Nancy Ngo of the Pioneer Press, “Casual.”

James Norton, food editor of Growler Magazine, “‘Havana.’ Or ‘barbecue.’ Lots of unexpected and good Cuban food popping up (particularly the superb Guavas Cafe), and the barbecue scene seems to grow by leaps and bounds every year.”

Joy Summers, editor Eater Twin Cities, “Comfort.”
