Munch Madness 2013 from The Boston Globe
A restaurant tournament that is modeled on the NCAA's March Madness is back once again.
Today marks the first day of The Boston Globe's Munch Madness 2013 competition, a bracket that includes 64 dining spots in and around the city, all of which will be vying for the title of best restaurant (based on readers' votes). The past two years have seen Hungry Mother take the top spot, defeating Craigie on Main in 2012 and East Coast Grill in 2011. (Interestingly enough, all three eateries are located in Cambridge.)
The first round of voting takes place today and tomorrow, with subsequent rounds occurring over the following days. The championship will be held on March 30 and 31, with the winner being announced on April 1.

[April 1 update: For the third year in a row, the Munch Madness winner is Hungry Mother, which defeated Oleana (also in Cambridge) to win the crown. Craigie on Main was beaten by Hungry Mother in the semifinals this year, with Oleana defeating Gaslight in Boston's South End. (Full results can be seen at the link above.)]
