Best Things I Ate in Plano Last Year

Okay, Plano, who’s up for a dining challenge? As a professional food writer, I make an annual list of the best foods I eat during reviews. This past year, I created a Plano-specific list, as all of DFW now takes notice of the thriving Collin County dining scene.

A move took me out of Texas in October, so I commissioned a few of my trusted fellow foodies to help name the best dishes from the latest openings in town. I wasn’t able to eat everything Plano restaurants offered last year, but I sure gave it my best shot.
