As is the tradition at Eater, our closeout of the year is a survey of friends, industry types, bloggers, and readers. We asked the group to sum up 2012 in one word. Here are their responses, unedited and in no particular order:

Josh Sens, San Francisco Magazine: You're really asking someone who writes about food to use one word? This is a field of blatherers and blowhards.

Jane Goldman, Beer.

Jesse Hirsch, The Examiner: Turbulent.

Anna Roth, SF Weekly: Genre-bending.

Grant Marek, Thrillist: Reclaimed. The fanciest way to say "trash" ever.

Jonathan Kauffman, Tasting Table: Lower-key (than 2011)

Virginia Miller, SF Bay Guardian: Recognized. ?

Paolo Lucchesi, Inside Scoop SF: Foie.

Marcia Gagliardi, Tablehopper: DANNYMOTHERFUCKINGBOWIEN
