Restaurant Madness 2016
Steve Meyer

It’s time to start voting in the first round of match-ups to find out the Best Restaurant at the Jersey Shore!

In keeping with the spirit of the basketball brackets that will soon be taking over everywhere, Restaurant Madness is back! We will crown the best restaurant in Monmouth and Ocean Counties as voted by you. This year, the Madness coincides with the foodie fest that is Jersey Shore Local Restaurant Month, presented by Jersey Shore inMotion and Jersey Shore Hurricane News.

We have narrowed it down to a competing pool of 64 (bracket available by clicking HERE). Feel free to e-mail me your winning picks, but remember, it’s all just for fun.

Today’s match-ups:

Belford Bistro, Belford vs. Moonstruck, Asbury Park
Teak, Red Bank vs. Larimar, Spring Lake
Dive, Sea Bright vs. Brando's Citi Cucina, Asbury Park
Porcini, Highlands vs. Undici, Rumson
Crab's Claw Inn, Lavallette vs. Tuscan Bistro Bar, Toms River

Voting will be done with the polls below, and will last for 24 hours! (Voting is limited to one vote per person per match-up.)

Good luck to all!
