A List of Our 2011 Food Discussion Participants

Last year, the Boston's Hidden Restaurants site started hosting a series of live online food discussions, and we continued with a number of chats this year, covering such topics as best dive bars in the Boston area, long-closed restaurants, outdoor dining, and more.
