If it’s March, it must be time for the tournament everyone awaits all year: Munch Madness, The Boston Globe’s annual restaurant competition, of course. Sixty-four local establishments face off on an NCAA-style bracket, to battle it out for top honors (and engage in some good-spirited trash talk along the way).
This year sees longtime favorites and newcomers going toe to toe: Delfino vs. Little Donkey, Haley House vs. Mooncusser Fish House. Last year’s champion, Oleana, has been retired, but sibling spots Sofra and Sarma are here to pick up the mantle. Tablecloths meet takeout in matchups such as Barbara Lynch’s No. 9 Park vs. Armenian-Lebanese fast-casual Anoush’ella and Fort Point caviar-cart pusher Oak + Rowan vs. Trinidadian mainstay Ali’s Roti Restaurant. There’s a serious sushi showdown on the horizon as O Ya meets Uni, while dumplings duke it out in the case of Myers + Chang vs. Gourmet Dumpling House.
Who will emerge the victor? You decide. Go to Globe.com/MunchMadness to cast your vote. Let the games begin.
