In conjunction with the Taste of Annandale, the Annandale Blog is reviving its “Best of Annandale” competition. Readers are asked to name their favorite places to eat within or on the edge of Annandale, defined as the 22003 zip code.

The winners of what we’re calling the “Annie Awards” will be announced at the Taste of Annandale Oct. 14.

The first phase of the “Annie Awards” contest calls for readers to nominate their favorites in several categories in an open-ended online survey. Places getting the most mentions will go on to the second round, in which readers will vote for their top choices.

These are the categories:

  • Best restaurant overall
  • Best restaurant for families
  • Best restaurant for a date
  • Best restaurant for breakfast/brunch
  • Best fast food
  • Best Korean restaurant
  • Best pizza
  • Best chicken
  • Best bar
