Do you feel the heat, South Florida? No, don't worry. The air conditioner in your car didn't break down. That's the heat coming from the anticipation of New Times' annual Best Of Edition -- the hottest guide to the newest restaurants, the coolest bars, and the most original shops. It all goes down June 19, when Best Of Broward/Palm Beach hits the streets online and in print.
But before we can close the book (literally) on this massive guide to everything good about South Florida, there's something we need:
That's right, readers. We need your guidance, your input. After all, this is your town. Last month, we asked you to nominate your favorite restaurants, chefs, burgers, bars, and shops in our Readers' Choice poll. We've counted the results and whittled the list down to the top five in each category. Now, we're asking you to vote for your favorites.
From now until June 4, vote on literally dozens of categories, many of them food-related, like best burger, Chinese restaurant, hot dog, food truck, chef, dive bar, and new restaurant.
Just visit readerschoice.browardpalmbeach and choose your best of the best. Then, look out for our supersized Best Of edition -- coming to you June 19. It's going to be a hot summer!
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.
