We look back the food and restaurants that defined 2017. In Boston, there was an explosion of poke restaurants around the city, people rediscovered a love of bread and bread baking, and Whole Foods around the city had a new owner - Amazon.

Also, we talk about the accusations of sexual misconduct and the "meathead bro culture" in the kitchens of celebrity chefs and chain restaurants around the country.
