The Top Ten Dishes (and the Absolute Worst) of 2007




In the past twelve months, I've reviewed sixty-two restaurants (and one minor-league baseball stadium) in the pages of the RFT. I've traveled to Columbia and the metro east. I've sampled the cuisines of Korea, Japan, Ethiopia and Eritrea, Iran, Thailand, Bosnia, Brazil, Nicaragua, Vietnam (twice), Mexico (thrice) and India (four times). I've feasted on wild-mushroom ravioli with shaved black truffle, gorged on cupcakes and even tried a bacon-cheeseburger served between two halves of a glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut.

I've gained a few pounds.

This week I'm counting down my ten favorite dishes of 2007 -- and the absolute, no-holds-barred worst. Check back this afternoon for #10.
