Vote for Your Favorite Connecticut Restaurants and Chefs in CT Restaurant Association Contest

1 Nov

The Connecticut Restaurant Association has put together a list of some of the best chefs and restaurants from the state and needs your help.  They want you to vote on your favorites for Upscale Restaurant of the Year, Casual Restaurant of the Year, Caterer of the Year, Mixologist of the Year, and Chef of the Year.  While we do focus on Fairfield County, there are definitely some great places up for nomination that we’d love to try when we’re out yonder.  But, that’s not to say that Fairfield County isn’t represented!  Pepe’s Pizza is up for Best Casual (they aren’t just New Haven, ya know), David’s Soundview Catering (yeahhhh!) is up for Best Caterer, and everybody’s favorite badboy chef Bill Taibe of LeFarm is up for Best Chef of the Year.

Just vote by filling out the quick form here and giving your e-mail addy.  You can only vote once per e-mail address, so don’t get out of control. :P  Voting ends on November 6 at 5pm.  The winners will be honored on 11/27 at the CRA Salute to Excellent Awards Dinner at Mohegan Sun.  For details on getting tickets or being a sponsor, click here.  So, show some love to our local restaurants and vote them in!  Here are all the contestants:

    […] We feel that catering businesses often don’t receive all the great press and recognition that they deserve.  They are part chef, part baker, part server, part host, and…well…it exhausts us to even watch them do their thang.  So, it’s great for us to see that Marcia Selden Catering of Stamford gets some great press quite often.  For six years in a row, they’ve won Best Caterer from Moffly Media’s Best of the Gold Coast awards and were honored recently by being chosen as Caterer of the Year by the Connecticut Restaurant Association.
