In its third year, The Munchies: People's Choice Food Awards were once again hosted by Andrew Zimmern, chef and the 2013 winner of the James Beard Award for Outstanding TV Personality/Host. The list of nominees was developed by Zimmern and a panel of 40 celebrity food experts. Zimmern announced the nominees at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival's "Best of the Munchies" closing event, which were then put to popular vote on Tablespoon.com/themunchies

"It's been exciting to ignite a passionate food debate and encourage people to support their favorite restaurants, media, and chefs by voting," says Zimmern. "These awards are a celebration of the best food experiences across America, and we all congratulate each of the winners."

The people chose New York as Best Food City. Additionally, New York establishments Roberta's, Shake Shack, The Spotted Pig, and Union Square Greenmarket received The Munchies awards for Best Pizza, Best Burger, Best Late Night Food and Best Farmers Market.

Winners from other cities across the country also took home the top prize, with the Best Taco award going to La Taqueria in San Francisco; the Best Donut award going to Voodoo Doughnut in Portland, OR; the Best Bloody Mary award going to Icehouse in Minneapolis; and the Best Food Truck award going to Guerrilla Street Food in St. Louis. Boston's Dunkin' Donuts won the award for Best Coffee and The Publican in Chicago won for Best Brunch Spot. 

Other notable winners include Amy Thielen's "The New Midwestern Table" for Best New Cookbook, April Bloomfield for Best Chef and Eater for Best Food Blog or Site.

The Munchies winners will receive their awards in the coming weeks, but they're not the only winners: a donation was made to Feeding America on behalf of the panelists and voters who participated in selecting the Terrific Tastemakers, Best Bites and Delicious Destinations that are being honored.
