This panel is all over the map.

As is tradition at Eater, we close the year with a survey of food critics, writers, and bloggers. This year we posed eight questions, from meal of the year, to top restaurant newcomers. All will be answered by the time we turn off the lights at the end of 2014. Responses have been cut, pasted, and unedited, for the most part. Readers, please do add your survey answers in the comments.

Lesley Chesterman, The Gazette fine dining critic:
Toss up between Mile End and Little Italy.

Ève Dumas, La Presse food writer:
Can't say, really. The good restaurants in Montreal are so spread out now.

Andrée Harvey, ex-Voir food critic:

Marie-Claude Lortie, La Presse restaurant critic:
Mile-End and St-Henri, ex-aequo.

Gildas Meneu, Voir food critic, creator of le gourmet galopin blog:
Le Sud-Ouest, toujours lui. Griffintown/Petite­-Bourgogne/Saint­-Henri/Verdun sont probablement les quartiers où l'offre bouge le plus. Le Vieux-­Montréal se défend bien aussi. Et le boulevard Saint-­Laurent est un quartier en soi, sur toute sa longueur !

Sarah Musgrave, The Gazette casual dining critic, enRoute magazine editor:
La Petite-Patrie, Little Italy, Mile Ex… or St-Henri.
