The participating restaurants this year include: George’s Place, Hector’s, John Howie’s Steakhouse, Lynn’s Bistro, Noppakao Thai, Palomino, Purple Cafe, Russell’s, Sea Star and Shamiana.

The Eastside Business Association will present samplings of each restaurant’s entries in the five categories for you to vote on, also wine pairings and samplings compliments of EBA’s corporate sponsor, Columbia Winery.

The Eastside Business Association will also serve martinis and other yummy drinks.

Internationally renowned pianist and composer, Scott Cossu will provide live musical entertainment.
