Best in Dining 2017: Our Critic’s Choice Awards

This was the year of “who knew?” I had excellent meals at chain restaurants. I jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon. I had good mac-and-cheese at the opening of a WAWA gas station.

So before we enter the “who knows?” territory of a new year, let’s take a look at the year’s best in dining. The list that follows is subjective – these are the best in my opinion. I could not dine at every new restaurant or visit some of the buzzy ones I wanted to. This list is based on experiences I did have.

Cheers to 2017!

We all know our Sunshine State is full of restaurants with spectacular views. And OpenTable agrees.
