We've made our list, checked it twice, and today you're going to find out everything that's on it. Yep, we're ready to debut New Times' annual Best Of issue for 2011 -- in which we pick our favorite people, places, and things in all of Broward and Palm Beach counties. Of course, a good number of those revolve around food and the folks who cook it.
Which eatery have we declared the Best
Restaurant in Broward? The Best in Palm Beach? Who's the Best Chef? Where can you get the Best Martini? Where's the Best Place to Cure a Hangover?
Find out in the Food & Drink section. Hopefully, these 150-word ditties of praise in prose serve as a small measure of
validation for those who toil in kitchens every day, and hopefully they steer you readers
toward some new treats to enjoy! Read our picks, agree with 'em, or challenge us on 'em -- that's part of the fun. What do you think? Did we call it? Or are we out of our minds?
The whole list -- including sports, music, and more -- is here.
Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
