As is tradition at Eater, we wind up the year with a survey of Montreal food writers. We've already covered Best Standbys and Top Newcomers. Now it's time to sum up 2013 in One Word.

Q: Sum up 2013 in one word.
Lesley Chesterman, Gazette critic: Foodtrucks (notice how I made that one word).
Jean-Philippe Tastet, Le Devoir critic: Make that two: surprisingly good.
Marie-Claude Lortie, La Presse critic: Green. As in (too much) green natural wines, underoasted coffee, green desserts... As in (never enough) new and tasty and plenty of green vegetables!
Andrée Harvey, Voir critic: Créativité.
Gildas Meneu, Voir critic: No-show!.
Gemma Horowitz, CultMTL critic: #KaleFatigue.
Bill Zacharkiw, Gazette wine writer: Rustic.
Joanna Fox, co-author of Chuck's Day Off and former critic/writer for Montreal Mirror and CultMTL: Wine. Way more interesting choices, lots of biodynamic wines, more thoughtful wine lists, and surprisingly, more reasonably priced, incredible options in restaurants all over the city.
Ian Harrison, Eater editor: Informal. As in casual rooms with solid kitchen chops and strong wine/cocktail programs.
