Vote to Win Dinner at Your Favorite Restaurant!
Your opinion matters to Zagat, and to show our appreciation to the voters in our DC/Baltimore Restaurants Survey, we've partnered with Howard County Food Blogger, HowChow to give you the chance to win dinner at your favorite restaurant!

One winner will receive a $300 restaurant gift card towards a night out at their favorite Howard County restaurant!

How it works
Fill out the registration form to the right by March 25th, 2012.
Visit the Zagat DC/Baltimore Restaurant Survey to begin voting and commenting on the restaurants you’ve visited in the past year. Each new comment will be judged as a new entry in the contest!

Then, starting on March 26th, we'll pick the winner based on who wrote the best-quality reviews. For more details on what we're looking for in a review, check out the example below. Happy voting!
It's all about the scene at this Downtown Italian hot spot where the stylish crowd, slick decor and designer-clad staff are all equally gorgeous. You definitely pay for the spectacle, but the well-prepared food is worth it too – if your waiter can tear himself away from the mirror long enough to serve it.
Note: You must be 21 years of age, and a resident of Maryland, Virginia, or DC to be eligible.  

If there are multiple Zagat-sponsored contests with overlapping contest periods, entries will only be counted in the first contest for which you register.  Click here for Official Contest Rules.
