About the Top Best Places for Food and Dining in the 2022 Parents Press Readers Choice Poll

The Best of Parents Press was born with the idea to give readers in the Bay Area a chance to voice their opinions on their personal ‘Family Favorite’ choices for Best Place for Food and Dining and everything kids and family. The program has evolved over the years, and hopefully, with a lot of input from our readers, we’ve been able to make it better and better.

The voting for Alameda County Best Place for Food and Dining is conducted in a two-round process. The first round occurs in the month of March and early April with open write-in nominations for parent’s favorite Best Place for Pizzas taking place. 

As the nomination period for Best Place for Food and Dining in the first round comes to a close, shortly after, the second round opens with the top nominee Best Place for Food and Dining being selectable in this final round of voting during the month of April and May. Write-in nominations are no longer available, and voters are open to select their favorite Best Place for Food and Dining from among those that are listed.

The final winners are posted in the August issue of Parents Press

We hope you enjoy! And we hope you come back to vote next year
