By As Seen In New Jersey Monthly, July 18, 2008

Our critics do a lot of eating, and every August we look back and share the best of the best with you. And you do the same by voting in our Annual Readers' Choice Restaurant Poll. Discover which restaurants we honored and which are your favorites.

Here are the results of our 25th Annual Readers' Choice Restaurant Poll, which were tabulated by PricewaterhouseCoopers in Florham Park. The winning restaurant in each of three regions (North, Central, and South), received the majority vote in its category; we have also added our critics' picks. All readers who submitted a ballot became eligible to win dinner for two in our random drawing. This year's winner is Salvatore Manente of Secaucus. He will receive a gift certificate to Scalini Fedeli in Chatham, the restaurant chosen as the Best of the Best in the North.
