The voting is completed. The editor's choices and pics were very chowhoundish. Lot's of favorites from the board. Pauline's Pizza lovers will be glad to hear it was the editor's choice for best pizza.
While it didn't win, Desiree was on the list of best lunch spots.
I really love citysearch becuase IMO it really does point you to the best restaurants in the ciy.
A nice feature that I never noticed before is the link to national winners in each catagory.
HOWEVER, it is apparant that many of you hounds did NOT participate in the voting. McDonalds, In N Out burger, Bucca di Beppo, showed up on the audiance lists. Also making it on quite a few lists was Beach Chalet. I am convinced the restaurant staged a huge write in campaign.
Also appearing .... Pasta Pomodoro ... well the editors can't be 100% right.
And ... I THINK I saw Steps of Rome in there in the audiance picks.
