Last week, in my 12th annual Fall Dining Guide, I featured 40 restaurants where I dream of being a regular — a number I whittled down from more than 80 contenders. If past is prologue, readers will jam my inbox with protests asking why their favorites weren’t among mine. I hope the following critiques of three restaurants I auditioned for the guide will shed light on the process and on why some places didn’t pass the critical test: Would I want to be a regular here?


Four Sisters

Hank’s Oyster Bar
