I'm counting down the top ten dishes from the new restaurants that I reviewed in 2012. Read the complete series to date.

#4. The "Pork Porterhouse" at Cleveland-Heath (106 North Main Street, Edwardsville, Illinois; 618-307-4380)

The pork chop "porterhouse," topped with a sunny-side-up egg and served over jalapeño-cheddar bread pudding, perfectly captures the Cleveland-Heath aesthetic of elevated comfort food. The Berkshire pork is exceptionally flavorful and, cooked to a blushing-pink medium, very juicy. The texture of the bread pudding is reminiscent of fry bread, and like fry bread, it is sinfully luscious, in this case from the pork's juices. And a fried egg makes just about everything better.
