BUFFALO, NY – At the 28th annual Taste of Buffalo presented by Tops, festival-goers had the opportunity to text a vote for their favorite menu item and help select the Fan Favorite Food. Thousands of votes were cast and this year’s winner is Vegetable Putanesca with Whole Wheat Pasta from Orazio’s Restaurant, which received 53% of the votes.
“Everyone walks away from the Taste having sampled a favorite, or several favorite items, and we were excited to give festival-goers a chance to text a vote for their favorite,” said Mark Zawodzinski, 2011 Taste chairman.
Voting took place throughout the two-day event item numbers and texting information were available at each restaurant and in the festival guide.
The Taste of Buffalo presented by Tops, the largest two-day food festival in the country, marked its 28th year in 2011. For more information, visit www.tasteofbuffalo.com.
