Q: Dining world headline predictions for 2013?

Chelsea Olson, Miami Editor, Eater Miami: David Chang opens his first Miami restaurant (wishful thinking).

Frodnesor, of Food For Thought: A Miami Food Blog: Pubbelly boys, having opened an Asian gastropub, sushi bar, tapas bar, Italian restaurant, and steakhouse, open a burger joint and declare Miami restaurant "BINGO!"

Sara, Editor for Urbandaddy Miami: The expansion of Miami-centric empires. More Pubbelly ventures, more Pious Pig, more Bar Lab.

Ryan Roman, of Miami's Restaurant Power Rankings: "Guy Fieri lights Pete Wells on fire and, for a fleeting moment, the two have matching shirts."

Cari, of Fatgirl Hedonist: In general I see more and more of a focus towards locally sourced and organic food. I predict Farmer's Markets popping up in more neighborhoods from North Miami Beach to Hialeah. In Miami I predict the demise of more food trucks as that trend hits a plateau, more bakeries, and more restaurants popping up in the southwest area of the county (Kendall). Lastly, I predict the opening of an Ethiopian restaurant (this is more wishful thinking than prediction, but what the heck).

Steven, of Chowfather: "People of Cobaya, I am ready to cook for you." -Jose Andres

Liz, Editor for Thrillist Miami: Unfortunately, probably even more about quinoa.

Aleksandra Marcotte, Eater Contributor: I would say a surge in mixology and microbrews, as evidenced in Broken Shaker's permanent return and debut of Michael's Genuine home brew.
