Appetizer King crab rice grits with fried crab, padron pepper pickle, and tarragon at Restaurant Eugene.

Salad Any of the daily-changing leafy wonders at Dynamic Dish, preferably with ripened Bûcheron cheese melted on top.

Fish Whole-roasted trout with winter squash, currants, peanut chutney, baby kale, and arugula at Cakes & Ale.

Pasta Black spaghetti with rock shrimp, scallions, and hot Calabrese sausage at La Pietra Cucina.

Meat Grilled bobwhite quail with roasted Seckel pears, creamed Brussels sprouts, and crispy sunchokes at Woodfire Grill.
