2017 Best Of Food & Dining Annapolis Winners

You did it again! Thank you to our loyal readers who took the time to voice their votes for the tops in town when it comes to fave foods and dining experiences. This past January we called upon you to write-in your restaurant recommendations in more than 50 food and dining categories. Most readers submitted their ballot online, while others mailed them the old-fashioned way. After carefully vetting ballots for any duplicates or multiples originating from one source (no ballot stuffing allowed!), we arrived at the resulting winners. Please enjoy perusing your list of who’s Best of Annapolis and pay them a visit. And coming in our July issue, we’ll publish the Best of Retail & Professional Services results.
