It's that time of year, and Sean DeBobes reviewed his journeys up and down the state. Here are the five restaurants that topped his list for 2010. Critic’s Choice. Whenever someone has asked me recently what my favorite meal has been this year I can instantly tell them that Chef Dan Hall of Perro Salado in Newport gets the prize. I have been dreaming of the savory charred corn on the cob mixed with the smoky chipotle mayo and grilled vegetables. When I am done reminiscing about that I can just go right to the sinfully good coconut broth Mahi Mahi.
