Best Meal of 2009

With all the variety out there it is difficult to say exactly which meal was the best in 2009. Eater left it to the experts to spill on their favorites. Among the most popular were several dishes at Marea. Kate Krader of Food & Wine raved over burrata antipasti, ferrantini pasta with clams and squid and chiles. Then Jeff Zalaznick of Always Hungry loved the octopus & bone marrow fusilli, also stating “even the steak at Marea is mind blowing.”

Here the others that made the list in no particular order:

Blue Hill at Stone Barns

Le Bernardin

El Bulli

Prime Meats

David Burke Townhouse
