As is the tradition at Eater, our closeout of the year is a survey of friends, industry types, bloggers, and readers. We've covered standbys, newcomers, 'hoods, one-word descriptions of the year, dining surprises and single best meals. Now, it's time for breakups.Ocean Prime. [Photo: Ocean Prime/Facebook]
Q: Were there any restaurants that you broke up with in 2011?
José Ralat Maldonado, The Taco Trail: After three horrendous experiences at Meddlesome Moth, I vowed to not return.
Twisted Root, a favorite of my wife and kid. The day after patronizing the SMU location would alwasy be a painful one.
Sarah, BigDFoodTrucks: Ocean Prime...my mouth is salty enough without it
Daniel "BBQ Snob" Vaughn, Full Custom Gospel BBQ: I stopped going to Twisted Root. The big lines, annoying 'humorous' yelling of the celebrity names and just average burgers make it hard to eat here when Cane Rosso is just across the street.
Stephanie Hawkes, DFW Food Truck Foodie: Nobody, we are all still in the ooglie eyes stage.
