As is the tradition at Eater, it's time for the annual Year in Eater survey. For the National version, we asked a group of notable chefs, editorial folks and—bonus—various Eater city editors a series of questions. Yesterday, Single Best Meals were discussed, and all will be answered by the time we turn off the lights on Thursday. Responses are related in no particular order; all are cut, pasted and unedited herein:
