My Seven Favorite ABC 7 Stories & Bites from 2019

I taste a lot of food over the course of a typical year, and this year was a particularly delicious one. In a given year, I do about 92 stories for ABC 7, some of which have multiple locations. Then figure in all of the places I try that don’t make the air, and you’re talking about dozens of restaurants, bakeries, bars and food shops visited each year, always looking for just one thing: delicious. Here are my Top 7 for 2019:
