Eat Guide 2010

by IN Staff
The A - Z challenge

Everybody can get stuck in the occasional food rut. And you know exactly what we're talking about when we say "rut." It's when you find yourself not only going to the same restaurants over and over again, but also ordering the same thing off the menu every time. We're creatures of habit, but it's still sad.

So in order to break the monotony, we decided to issue a staff-wide, rut-breaking challenge for our 2010 Annual Eat Guide feature. The rules were simple: draw a letter, then eat a type of food or particular dish beginning with that letter that you've (a) never tried, or (b) never liked.

This alphabetical epicurean experiment took us in pretty much every direction possible. From shiny new waterfront eateries to Asian grocery stores to sushi restaurants attached to condominiums -- nothing was off limits. We even ate a candy bar with bacon in it. Seriously. So get ready to get hungry and inspired. Bon appetit!
