The scene, in short.

"Kaleidoscopic" and "worldly" are two words that could describe the Rijsttafel at Tempo Dulu in Portland.

As is tradition at Eater, we close the year with a survey of food writers, bloggers, and industry experts. We posed eight questions, from meal of the year to top restaurant newcomers. All will be answered by the time we turn off the lights at the end of 2015. Responses have been cut, pasted, and largely unedited. Readers, please add your survey answers in the comments.

Q: How would you describe the 2015 Maine restaurant scene in one word?
