Today’s Happy Half Hour is our special year-end wrap-up, with hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson, along with producer Archana Ram and digital wizard (our “guy with the wires”) David Martin

We’re starting as we always do with Hot Plates, including a new sushi spot in Leucadia and two openings in Bankers Hill—a coffee shop from a popular local roaster and an Italian restaurant courtesy of a father-son duo from Rome.

This week’s Hot Topics include a New York Times story about how recent Southern California wildfires have devastated avocado and lemon groves, and the biggest food trends of 2017, according to USA Today.

Finally, we’re bringing you our favorite food moments from the past year, along with some of our most memorable Happy Half Hour episodes:
