OK, so print's dying, but someone forgot to tell our readers. They cast more votes for more establishments in more categories than at any time in Metro's history.

The winners represent an informative slice of life in Silicon Valley in 2012, the year we're all supposed to die—let's just hope someone forgets to remind the Aztec gods.

In each category, we have indicated a winner plus two runners-up—with some tie votes for good measure. We have also included some Best of recommendations from our tireless staff and singled out some Best of Hall of Fame inductees. Of course, there may well be places worthy of comment that aren't in this Best of Issue. That's why we do one every year, and why we hope you'll add your thoughts by posting a comment to our Facebook page.
