The danger of doing an annual Best issue is that readers could well screw up the whole thing, especially when it comes to eating out. It would suck if they voted for the too-familiar national-chain eateries. Best Hamburger: McDonalds?!

We don’t have this problem with the Phoenix Best Readers’ Poll. In fact, with one excusable exception, all of our readers’ picks for superlative comestibles and potables are native-born; even the winner in the Best Coffee Shop — National category.

So get the message, diners and guzzlers: in these awful economic times, eat local, drink local, and generally stick around. That way, Boston’s food scene will only get better.
