Sarah Sung, UrbanDaddy: “Mobility”

Thomas Keller, The French Laundry: “Challenging”

Brock Keeling, SFist: “Fetishistic”

Ryan Farr, 4505 Meats: “Out with the old, in with the new” (umm….not one word, but okay)

Anna Weinberg, South: “Recessed”

Rajat Parr, RN74: “Brilliant”

Joe Hargrave, Tacolicious: “Lingering”

Christopher Kostow, Meadowood: “Cautious”

Nish Nadaraja, Yelp: “Mobile”

Brett Emerson, Contigo: “Locavore.” (because the movement towards buying locally raised foods keeps on building momentum. and it seemed to reach its tipping point this year)

Jan Newberry, San Francisco Magazine: “Streetfoodbaconbutcher” (Sure.)

Bruce Hill, Picco/Bix: “Scary” (we agree)

Lissa Doumani, Terra/Ame: “Vertigo”
