The Best Things We Ate and Drank in 2017

From calamari in London to tacos in Los Angeles and every meal everywhere in between

At The Daily Meal, our motto is pretty simple: “All things food and drink.” We live for good food and fine beverages, and throughout the year we spend a solid portion of our free time exploring new restaurants, brunching with friends at familiar spots in our neighborhood, sampling new cocktails, and experimenting in our own kitchens.

The end of the year brings with it some level of reflection. It’s unavoidable. And for our staff, that means reflecting on the best things we ate and drank.

By the “best things we ate and drank,” we don’t just mean fancy dinners at Michelin-starred restaurants, though those are always wonderful experiences. The best meals and beverages for most of us were those simple things. A perfectly-broiled cheeseburger at our hometown bar, an ice cold pina colada and a shot of tequila at the end of a long day, and meals with friends and family who we maybe don’t see all that often… these are the most memorable (and the best) things one can have. A meal shared with loved ones is a better meal.
