The nominees for Best Restaurant Overall were chosen based on past performance and critical review, previous nominations and votes, and standing in the culinary community.
The nominees for Best New Restaurant were chosen from among the notable restaurants that opened within the past 18 months.
Unlike previous categories, write-in candidates will not be selected.
To thank you for participating in selecting the winners, Scott Joseph's Orlando Restaurant Guide will give away a $100 gift card to the winner of the Best Restaurant Overall category. The winner will be selected by random drawing from among the list of Scott's e-letter recipients. If you already receive the weekly mailing, you're already entered to win. If not, click here and enter your email address; simple as that.
Voting will continue through Jan. 10 and the winning restaurant will be announced in the Jan. 11 edition of the e-letter.
After you place your ballot, leave a comment telling us why you think it's the Best. We may use your comments when the winners are announced. Be sure to give the name of the restaurant in your comment, otherwise we won't know which one you're referring to.
