An answer to everyone's favorite college basketball frenzy, Restaurant Madness is back!

We'll start with the top 64 restaurants at the Jersey Shore, and with every round get closer to naming the top spot to chow down in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, as voted by you.

All of the restaurants in Restaurant Madness 2013 are currently open! I'd like to mention that a lot of incredible restaurants were forced to shut down by Sandy, and we hope to see those places back up on their feet soon!

Thanks to everyone who nominated their favorite restaurants. Voting will start this Monday, March 18th, through polls on this page, and will last for 24 hours!

Remember, this is all just for fun (and glory), but as a bonus, you'll have the chance to win some awesome prizes!! Let’s see who takes the title!

Good luck to all the participants! Here is the starting bracket for Restaurant Madness 2013!
