I've never seen so many lead changes in a week-long contest before but I shouldn't be surprised as if there's one thing Uticans dig, it's food! After the dust settled this morning, Carmella's barely edged out our best greens winner, Raspberries Cafe for first place! Out of the over 41,000 votes cast, the lionshare went to our top two finishers, Carmella's with 40% of the vote and Raspberries just a few votes under that at 39%. The Crazy Clam, Teddy's and Michael T's rounded out your Top 5. Mike, Dino and the rest of the staff at Carm's will be presented with a plaque to display in their restaurant for their accomplishment.



Next up, is the Best of Utica Tomato Pie, nominate who you think should be on our list below and a week from now we'll start voting on them!
