Two votes! That was the margin which decided the Santa Fe restaurant which won the 2013 People’s Choice Green Restaurant award.
The Nature Conservancy announced today that the Santa Fe restaurant garnering the Nature’s Plate Award was Vinaigrette which edged out Il Piatto by two votes. More than 550 votes were cast for the four Santa Fe restaurants vying for the award.
The Albuquerque Nature’s Plate winner was Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm followed by Vinaigrette. 563 votes were cast for the four Duke City restaurants in competition for the award.
The Nature Plate contest invited voters to first nominate then vote for their favorite sustainable, organic or farm-to-table restaurant. A plaque recognizing the 2013 Nature’s Place People’s Choice Green Restaurant winners will be awarded to the two winners.
