foodWelcome to Scott Joseph's Foodster Awards for Independent Restaurants.

The Foodsters are an ongoing program to recognize and celebrate culinary excellence in Central Florida. The Foodsters are open to any business with three or fewer locations -- no chains.

Winners are chosen by you, with your vote. Make your selection in each category carefully -- only one vote is allowed per person.

You may nominate a restaurant for an appropriate category, but make sure it isn't already in the list of nominees. And remember: independent restaurants only.

Best Hotel Restaurant

Gaylord Palms Atrium

The restaurants listed here are nominated in the Best Hotel Restaurant category. They represent the best of independent restaurants found in hotels and resorts around Central Florida. 

Please note that while many of the hotels are indeed chain brands, the restaurants that are nominated fit the Foodster Awards' definition of independent with three or fewer locations. Indeed, most are unique to Central Florida.

To vote, click the box next to your favorite and then click the VOTE button. You may vote for only one candidate. If you have already voted, the VOTE button will no longer appear.

You are welcome to write in the name of a hotel restaurant you'd like to vote for by clicking the Write In button. But double check to verify that your candidate's name doesn't already appear in the list -- duplicates, and businesses that don't fit the definition of independent, will be deleted.

Voting in this category will continue through midnight on April 5, 2017. The winner will be announced in the April 6 edition of Scott's e-letter.

Leave a comment telling us why you voted for your selection -- Scott might quote you when the winner is announced (be sure to say which restaurant you voted for in your comment or we won't know who you're talking about).
