BUFFALO, NY (release) - For the second year in a row, guests at the Taste of Buffalo presented by Tops could text a vote for their favorite food and help select AT&T’s Fan Favorite Food.

Thousands of votes were cast and this year’s winner is Eggplant Parm from Cabaret in Buffalo.

“The restaurants loved the opportunity last year and we were excited to again partner with AT&T to give festival-goers a chance to text a vote for their favorite item at the Taste,” said Chris Hitchcock, 2012 Taste chairman.

Voting took place throughout the two-day event, July 7 & 8. Item numbers and texting information were available at each restaurant and in the festival guide.

In addition to the Fan Favorite Food Award, AT&T’s Mobile Concierge were on site with electronic tablets helping guests find their favorite restaurant or food, the nearest restrooms, etc.

In addition, guests could share their Taste experience by texting or tweeting a real time message to two large digital screens.

The Taste of Buffalo presented by Tops, the largest two-day food festival in the country, marked its 29th year in 2012. The 2013 Taste is set for July 13 & 14.
