East Bay, 2008

Looking back at the last 12 months in East Bay restaurants, the CoCo Times declares a year of new buzzwords with familiar definitions: In 2008, 'rustic' and 'authentic' were the regional buzzwords, dethroning the triumvirate of 'seasonal,' 'local,' and 'organic' from their multiyear reign.

Also big: tiny portions, communal tables and loud restaurants. [CCT]
