The event featured seven restaurants, each preparing a signature dish for the People's Choice food competition. Dishes were paired with a signature cocktail or beverage. Guests had the opportunity to try each dish and vote for their favorite. This year's people's choice favorite was Harvey's Restaurant and Bar. Next year they will face off against the 4 year champion, Chef Gulbrandson from Excelsior Springs. The winner of the inaugural Cocktail Competition was Upstate Distilling and Fish at 30 Lake who will compete in a head to head challenge next year. For dessert, Nothing Bundt Cakes took the top prize. Congratulations to our winners and thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed a evening that will change the lives of children throughout Saratoga County.
