BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. -- Daily Voice readers had a lot of fun this fall choosing winners in three popular food categories as part of our ongoing DVlicious contest. Among the choices:
First, readers gave us the names of their personal favorites. Those names were then whittled down to five finalists. There was good-natured rivalry, with the competing restaurants urging their customers to vote.
The 2015 Bergen County winners included:
PIZZA : Barcelona's Restaurant and Bar in Garfield, known for its thin-crust pizza and family-like congeniality, won DVlicious "Best Pizza in Bergen" with 37 percent of the vote. Barcelona's is at 38 Harrison Ave., (973) 778-4930.
WINGS : The 101 Pub in Bogota, with its three wing options (Buffalo, Sunset, and barbecue), captured 52 percent of the vote crowning the eatery with its amaz-wing win. The 101 Pub is at 101 Queen Anne Rd., (201) 343-9802.
SUSHI : Kaname, in Cliffside Park, proved it's on a roll, winning "DVlicious Best Sushi" with 42 percent of the vote. Diners like its pub-style ambience and authentic Japanese style yakitori. The restaurant just celebrated 30 years of business. Kaname is at 783 Palisade Ave., (201) 886-0080.
Up next for DVlicious: DINERS, and since New Jersey is the diner capital of the world, we're hoping Daily Voice readers start the new year off with the same "foodie" enthusiasm.
