My 2012 TFBA Awards Ballot

By William Kristoph

I promised that once the winners of the 2012 TFBA Awards were fully announced that I’d reveal my votes so that you guys can pick at them if you want. Let me say, that I do my best to not rip anybody to shreds in my reviews. That’s not what I want to do. Also, there are still many places in Tallahassee that I haven’t tried. So, if you didn’t rank on my ballot, don’t assume it’s because I don’t like you. I probably just haven’t had your food yet!

Voting was weighed and we were asked to pick up to our top 3. You’ll see there were many instances that I didn’t vote for three and some where I didn’t vote at all.
