The Best of 2020!!!

Happy New Year!  Seems like a bit of an oxymoron to be discussing the best of 2020.  Rather than dwell on the negative, let’s instead take a look back at some of the best eats of the year.  With a fresh set of eyes, cataracts removed, we enjoyed many a fine meal this year… even…
