All have been named the Star Tribune's Restaurant of the Year. We're about to unveil our 2009 selection (check it out at www.startribune.com/taste on Wednesday afternoon, and in print in Taste on Thursday morning), but before we do, we'd like to hear from you. What's your choice (or choices: on several occasions we've gone the Restaurants of the Year route) for 2009, and why?
The criteria: A restaurant that opened -- or changed substantially -- during the calendar year. Fire away.
