HOW IT WORKS: The Best of Milwaukee Readers' Choice Contest is a program that's open to the public. The nomination period for the 2021 edition of the contest runs Sept. 16-Oct. 14, 2021. During that period, readers have the opportunity to nominate their favorite entrees in over 300 categories in an open-ended format. Readers are allowed one nomination per category through an online ballot located on this page. Top nominated entrees move to the Final Round which runs Nov. 4-Dec. 2, 2021. The Final Round ballot is multiple choice in each category. Top vote-getters in each category are recognized as the Best of Milwaukee. Winners are also recognized at the Best of Milwaukee Party held annually in January.
