Announcing the Restaurant Contest Winner!

Over the last two weeks, a slew of mouthwatering, flavorful, hunger-inducing food photos have been coming in from a ton of enthusiastic Trovers for our restaurant contest–and we haven’t been complaining.

The only problem we had was choosing just one of the many delectable shots as the winner.

This near-impossible task was bravely taken up by our Trover judges and an incredibly hard decision was made. So, without further ado, we’d like to declare the winner of our restaurant contest as…Lindsay Henry!

This photo of a ridiculously tasty, mega meatball sandwich from Sascha’s in Baltimore, Maryland won the hearts and tummies of our judges:

Once again, congratulations to Lindsay who’ll be enjoying her grand prize of $1500!

If you’d like to connect with her, find her on Trover and check out her blog Vodka and Biscuits!
