Let's have a little montage to open this talk.
The fall dining guide is out. Looks good to me. Obviously there are places that I love that aren't in the dining guide, but does it really need the same places every single year? Nah.
Where I've been in the Dining Guide, in no particular order. * designates multiple visits, in some cases, many many visits (hi Palena and your roasted chicken, I am looking at you).
Birch & Barley
Restaurant Eve Tasting Room
Last year I kvetched about Vermilion not being included. Win this year! Overall I think it's a fine list. I don't personally oppose anything on there. Mr. Sietsema includes the cream of the crop, along with an assortment of other (some new, some not) options all over our fair metropolitan area.
What do you think?
