Editor Picks Her Favorite Dishes From 2011

Westword Cafe Society Editor Lori Midson has crowned her favorite dishes of the year, and it's an eclectic list that's going to make you lust. Some of this year's standouts include the mais pizza from Boulder's Pizzeria Locale, a place Midson describes as "better than unicorns and rainbows, butterflies and blow," as well as noodle jelly salad from Thai Street Food's brick and mortor in Aurora. Also on the list is the unique black ruff dish from chef Troy Guard (pictured) of TAG and an artfully plated lamb dish from chef Max MacKissock's Squeaky Bean pop-up dinner that "personified MacKissock's unspoken vow to ensure human happiness."
