Hudson's was my personal favorite last year. Dante, Cilantro, Chowder House and Nuevo are always favorites of mine so I can't wait to see what they bring to the table. I really hope Melt makes the cereal treat again this year! And I'm especially looking forward to trying Barmacy after always seeing it along the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.
