    Following on the success of last year's GNR renewals, we engaged in a similar process this year. First, we sought volunteers from the board to aid in the evaluation process. These volunteers, along with the GNR Committee members, considered the list of GNRs up for renewal to determine which restaurants/resources either had decreased in quality or required more discussion before making a decision. At that point we invited several members of the community that had participated in the GNR discussion in the past to provide their input on renewals. In all, over 20 board members, including the GNR Committee, were involved in the process.

    At every step of the process, the most important factor in making a determination was board posts. However, we also asked individuals to consider their recent experiences. We recognize that people do not feel compelled to post about every meal they have, particularly at old favorites where it can be hard to add something new to the discussion.

    Based on that discussion, the following GNRs have been renewed through 2017.

    From the feedback I received it's obvious that many people continue to visit and love so many GNRs even when discussion on the board has been quiet. The primary goal of this process was to determine if each GNR continues to do what made it special enough to be awarded. We will continue this process next year which will give even more board members an opportunity to participate in the renewal process. If there are any questions about the process or the GNRs in general, please feel free to pm me at any time.

    -Onur, for the GNRs
