Best of Broward / Palm Beach

New Times' Best Of is Back: Vote for Your Favorite Restaurants, Dishes Now

The 27th annual Best of Broward/Palm Beach issue comes out in June, giving us the opportunity to share with you our absolute favorite people, places, and things in South Florida.

Each year, our Best Of Issue has a signature theme. This year, we've picked a salute to the arcade games of the 80's with our "Game On" motif.

Best of Broward/Palm Beach celebrates the wonderful restaurants, clubs, shops, and services in our neighborhood in over 400 different categories ranging from best burger to best gun shop!

In addition to sharing our favorites with you, we want to know what you're thinking -- which is why we have special Readers' Choice categories. Starting today, you can nominate your favorites in over 60 categories, including over two dozen food & drink areas. So if you want to share who your favorite chef is, or where the best place to grab a midnight snack is, this is your chance.

Just tell us at from now until April 30. We'll choose the top five nominees in each category and open final round voting on May 5.

The winners will be announced in our June 19 Best Of issue, available in print, online, and on our Best Of app.
