Ah, José Andrés—-sheesh, what didn’t this guy do over the past 12 months? From James Beard Award glory to a cameo on The Simpsons, the dude seemed simply inescapable. (For a quick summary in 250 words or less, consult City Paper‘s “Annotated Guide to 2011.”) Y&H expects plenty more from D.C.’s most outspoken food whisperer in 2012. When Eater DC recently asked me for my dining-world predictions for the new year, I replied, “Coconuts and other produce will start talking back to José Andrés. He might not like what they’re saying.” I was only half-kidding.

What do you anticipate from Andrés and company in the coming year? Stick your predictions in the comments.
