2018 Best of Annapolis Food & Dining

Jun 01, 2018 12:00AM ● Published by Brian Saucedo

Photography by Tony Lewis, Jr. Thank you to our loyal readers who took the time to voice their votes for the tops in town when it comes to favorite foods and dining experiences. Ballotting for more than 50 food and dining categories took place in January, with most readers submitting their ballots online. After carefully vetting entries for any duplicates or multiples originating from one source or IP address (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. And the winners are for Best…
