28th Annual Readers’ and Critics’ Choice Poll

Our annual Readers’ and Critics’ Choice Restaurant Poll takes you all over the state to some of our favorite restaurants.

The results of our 28th Annual Readers’ Choice Restaurant Poll were tabulated by PriceWaterhouseCoopers in Florham Park. The winning restaurant in each region received the most votes in its category—in some cases there were ties; in some categories we also list a chain winner. We have also added our critics’ picks. All readers who submitted a ballot became eligible to win dinner for two in our random drawing. This year’s winner is Bill Hutchinson of Chester. He will receive a gift certificate to Blu in Montclair, the Best of the Best poll winner in the north region.
