In placing his vote for the winning brunch, Mark Hirsekorn wrote: “Santiagos Bodega is hands-down the best! Best: food/drinks/ambiance/service!”
But many other voters were just as passionate about their favorites. You can read some of the comments that were left on the Best Brunch Foodster page — they might entice you to try something new.
The restaurants listed here have been nominated for Best Brunch in our Foodster Awards for Independent Restaurants.
To vote for your favorite, check the box next to the name and then click the VOTE button at the bottom of the list of nominees. You may vote for only one nominee and you may vote only once. After you have voted, the VOTE button will no longer appear on the page.
You may write in the name of a restaurant that you'd like to nominate. But remember: The Foodster Awards are exclusively for independent businesses, defined as having three or fewer locations -- no chains. Any write-in nominees that don't meet that definition will be removed from the list. Also, do not write in the name of a restaurant or lounge that is already named in the list -- by doing so you may actually reduce the number of votes that restaurant might receive because only the votes on the first listing will be counted.
After voting, leave a comment below telling us who you voted for and why. We may use your comment if your favorite is the winner. (Be sure to put the name of the restaurant in your comment or we won't know which one you're referring to.)
Voting ends at midnight June 14.
