I could dive into every single one of these plates (and bowls and one cast iron pan) … I think this week's finalists just determined what I'm eating for the rest of the week. But since I can pick only one, I'm going with anatta0's photo of mussels from Town—plump mussels in a vermouth broth punctuated with tomato and sweet fennel. This, coupled with Town's herby french fries or bowl of polenta, is one of my favorite meals around, well, town.
anatta0 wins $25 to Tony Roma's. Congratulations!
