"Ultimate" Orange Country Restaurant Poll Results 2005

elmomonster | Dec 2, 200510:54 AM     14

Hounds,

Here are the results of the Poll of our favorite O.C. Restaurants for 2005. I believe this is the first year a companion list has been done for Orange County to compliment Mr. Grub's awesome "Ultimate" L.A. Restaurants.

For the O.C. poll results, a total of 145 votes were tallied from 29 respondents.

The votes are tallied from the responses assuming no particular rank order from the procured lists of 5. Some voters ranked their choices, but some others, like yours truly, did not. Personally, I could not choose which one of my favorite 5 restaurants to rank as #1, much like a parent cannot choose which child is their all-time favorite. As such, the results below represent the raw number of votes for each restaurant.

Take this UNSCIENTIFIC list for what it is worth, keeping in mind that it is done in FUN, and is in no way meant to be definitive, absolute, or complete.

But that said, this exercise has proved eye-opening for me. I walk away with dozens of new restaurants to try which I previously had no knowledge about. I hope the same for you.

Thanks again to all the participants.
