    that list was so boring I could not even bring myself to vote. come on philly mag, get real.

  • Tex

    Come on, Tyler; give them a break. Not everyone can afford to pay Philly mag for a “nomination.”

  • Selfish

    I will selfishly comment that I’m glad my favorite (truly excellent) haunts aren’t listed. They are busy enough without the Philly Mag suburbanite readers wedging their way into my favorite neighborhood places.

    I too, did not vote. Instead I’m waiting for foobooz to tell me for whom to cast my vote (*cough*Tashan*cough*).

    Tex: Tom McGrath, Philly Mag editor here. You’re certainly free to disagree with our selections for finalists, but let me make this clear (again): no one buys a nomination or a Best of Philly award. Please read my screed from last August on this topic:
