2012 proved to be a banner year for great meals. We've reviewed everything from giant burgers in Seattle to country luxe cuisine in Dallas, deep-dish Chicago pizza in Oklahoma to fresh ahi poke in Honolulu. 2012 was a year of food both exotic and familiar in some of the world's greatest cities for dining out.
Click the slideshow above for a retrospective of the best meals we covered in 2012, with our warmest gratitude for reading throughout the year, and the promise of even better things to come in 2013.
