If you’re anything like us, you face the “What should I have for dinner?” question nightly, and sometimes we hit a slump, going back to the same places for a perfectly fine meal. But we want to love what we eat, not just like it. So we asked chefs, restaurateurs and food industry experts about desserts they desire, sauces that make them swoon, dive bars of their dreams and every luscious, lusted-after dish and drink they’ve had in this town. As diverse as our dining scene is, some standouts came up over and over again, so we’ve made a list of the most buzzed-about, drool-worthy, can’t-get-enough sips, bits and bites as told to us by our local foodies.
