Vendy Awards Announce a Ton of Nominees!
The 2013 Vendy season is upon us and this morning the finalists for Dessert, (
the new category never mind, this is its second year) Market, New Jersey and Rookie were announced. Onto the finalists!
newly minted Market category, the nominees are Bon Chovie, Brooklyn Cured, Khao Man Gai NY, Lonestar Taco, and Porchetta. All are known from Smorgasburg, New Amsterdam Market and Hester Street Fair–the two biggest outdoor market scenes we have. The finalists hailing from the fine state of New Jersey include French Quarter, Home By The Range, Hunger Construction, Molly’s Milk, and Mustache Mobile. The category to watch in my mind is Rookie as there is going to be some good eats from these finalists: Mamak, Mystic Masala, Neapolitan Express, Nuchas, Sweet Chili and Toum. Lastly, Dessert is going to be chosen from: Carpe Donut, Cholita Cuencana, Del’s NYC, itizy, Oddfellows, Popitbaby and Liddabit Sweets.
