All of which makes the number of closely contested races in this year’s poll even more astounding. Would you believe it if we told you a mere two votes separated The Angry Baker and Explorers Club in the Best Vegetarian Restaurant category? Still, it wasn’t all horseshoes and hand grenades, as evidenced by runaway victories for 16-Bit Bar + Arcade and Melt Bar and Grilled for the Best New Bar and Best New Restaurant categories respectively.
