Jersey Choice Best Restaurant Poll Results 2017

The results of our 34rd Annual Jersey Choice Restaurant Poll are in! Here are the restaurants our readers voted best in the state.

The results of our 34th Annual Jersey Choice Restaurant Poll are in. Balloting took place online throughout the month of February. The winning restaurant in each region (north, central and south) received the most votes in its category (there were some ties). Ballots from duplicate e-mail or IP addresses were disqualified. Editorial discretion was used when votes were cast for restaurants that, in our judgment, belonged in another category. We have also added our critics’ picks (★). All qualified ballots were eligible to win our random drawing.
