In 1990, this magazine began an awards program in recognition of a few of the city’s finest restaurants. A quarter-century later, we proudly present the largest year yet, with 18 judges deciding the winners in 49 categories. The dining scene has grown substantially over the decades — as the finalists below attest — and we’re proud to have grown alongside.
Now, let’s eat!
Restaurant of the Year
Chef of the Year
Bartender of the Year
Pastry Chef of the Year
Sommelier of the Year
For most categories, our 18 judges split into smaller, specialized teams. Anyone with a perceived conflict of interest in a particular category was excluded. Judges discussed long lists, then revisited rooms and voted separately. Restaurant of the Year was a blind vote between Best Upscale and Best Casual. (The count was 17 to 1.) Meet the judges here.
