Four local restaurants earned top prizes during this week’s annual Great Barrington Area TasteFest featuring a delicious menu of tastes from dozens of area purveyors of food and spirits. Throughout the night guests voted for their favorite foods in four categories including “Best Taste”, “Best Entrée”, “Best Dessert” and “Best Spirit” and we have the names of this year’s winners!
Hosted by the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce, TasteFest was again held at the Chicago Marriott Northwest this year and hundreds of guests turned out to socialize while enjoying a sampling of local cuisine and spirits. At the end of the night, Chamber leaders announced the four winners who received the most votes of the evening. And the winners are…
Francesca’s Famiglia in Barrington for their Mushroom Ravioli
Mandiles Italian Restaurant in Algonquin for their Lasagna Rigatone with Vodka Sauce
Savory Salads for their Crack Brownies
Coopers Hawk Winery & Restaurant for wine
All of the dishes we sampled at TasteFest were so delicious and I highly recommend you find time to visit these participating restaurants.
