As 2014 winds down, it's a good time to look back at the ten best "Ten Best" lists we've shared over the past year.

These lists, by the way, are not popularity contests. We do not solicit "votes" from social media. Generally, Short Order writers share their favorite places in our weekly editorial meetings, which serve as a hothouse for new ideas. Most of the lists are borne from these sessions. And, yes, the writers (collectively as a team or individually) have experienced all of these restaurants and dishes firsthand.
These lists are popular, sure, but we also get our fair share of people who call us out for not including their absolute favorite burgers or sandwiches or restaurants. When you're doing a list of ten, unfortunately, some dishes will be left out. That's not to say that we don't hear our readers. In fact, many times we'll discover new favorite restaurants to write about from the comments section.
With that in mind, here are our ten favorite lists from 2014. Whether you're new to Miami, visiting for the holidays, or are a native, we hope these will whet your appetite for discovering new places and revisiting old favorites.More »
