About the Top 5 Chefs in the 2021 Best of Alameda

Alameda Magazine’s Best of Alameda was born with the idea to give readers in Alameda and throughout the East Bay a chance to voice their opinions on their personal ‘Family Favorite’ choices for Chefs and all kinds of everyday categories. 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 Best of Alameda Chefs is conducted in a two-round process. The first round occurs in the month of February with open write-in nominations for reader’s favorite Chefs taking place. As more and more nominations come in, the most written-in Chefs become automatically selectable and listed making it easier and easier for people to cast their nominations. And write-in nominations continue to be open until the end of the month.

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

The final winners are posted in June

We hope you enjoy! And we hope you cast your vote in February and again in April!
