Listicle: /ˈlistək(ə)l/ noun A piece of writing—in our case, recommendations of great places to eat and drink—presented as a list. A portmanteau of list and article, if you will.

It's easy to poke fun at listicles, especially with ones like this (or this or this...fine, this one is awesome) out there. But really, it's a damn efficient way to talk about places we love. Here are the year's most-read tabulations of the town's best stuff. Apparently our readers are into sushi, pie, wine, and not eating sad chicken fingers just because you're out with your kids.
