Ahh here we are! 2012 is winding down and we’ve got some top 5 lists on our radar. I’m not even close to being done with my list (I eat too much), but we’ve received some excellent contributions.
We’re kicking out countdown off with Laura Leebove’s tasty top 5. If this list isn’t enough to convince you that Laura knows food, you should probably spends some hours poring over her mouth-watering recipes (and their musical pairings) on Eating the Beats

Chirashi sushi at Morimoto in Napa:
A bowl of sushi rice topped with small cuts of about 10 different types of fish and veggies.
Tomato soup at Polonica in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn:
When I eat something perfect, I get a goofy smile on my face and can’t stop saying “I am so happy right now!” That happened the first time I had this soup. It’s not fancy — a little bit sweet, with tiny noodles in it — but the best tomato soup shouldn’t be.
Savory apple pull-apart bread with chives and Camembert, made in my kitchen:
Once in a while, I try out a recipe and when it’s finished it’s just so good that I can’t believe it’s something I made. This is a bread I baked with my best friend/favorite baking buddy. Recipe and post
on Eating the Beats.
Lox and cream cheese sandwich on challah at B&H Dairy in NYC:
The best meals do not need to be complicated. And half the satisfaction here comes from the price: $7.50.
Thai coconut ice cream at Brooklyn Scoops in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn:
Next summer I’ll definitely be frequenting this adorable ice cream shop that just opened in Bay Ridge, on Third Ave. and 76th St. Their Thai coconut ice cream tastes like sweet curry and has a little bit of a kick to it.
Thanks to Laura for her contribution and stay tuned for more top 5 list in the coming days.
