About 3,500 people came out to enjoy the Taste of Georgetown this year. That's what the Family Justice Center of Georgetown and Horry Counties says, and they also say it brought in about $40,000 after expenses.
That's pretty awesome, considering the area where the event is held.
Front Street, and its surrounding parks (where a tent was set up in one), can only accommodate so many people. This has been noticed by the Center.
There were many very positive comments about the Front Street setting and the quality of the food offerings. One guest who brought five members of her family said it was absolutely perfect and she could not have asked for a better experience. She also said having a map listing the location of the restaurants and menu item served was helpful.
Also recognized was the high quality of food served during this year's event. We think the bar was set high this year with the abundance of flavorful tastes. Here's what the Center had to say.
One of the highlights of a food tasting event is the quality of the food served by the many participating restaurants. Spiced, rubbed flounder with bacon and cheddar grits; crab balls; tacos; cajun shrimp with chicken and sausage; beef short ribs; seafood chowder; carrot cake; homemade ice cream and Winyah Bay Chowder were some of the top favorites this year.
The attendees were asked to pick their top tastes. Here's the top seven, as noted by the Center. Root was this year's People's Choice Award winner.
The top seven restaurants in alphabetical order were “All About You” Personal Chef, Buzz’s Roost, Graham's Landing on Front, Root, Southern Comforts, Sweeties Homemade Ice Cream & Sweets, and Manor House Restaurant At Wedgefield.
As does the Center, we at Georgetown Foodland tremendously thank all the participating restaurants for making this year's Taste of Georgetown a culinary destination and a success in raising funds for the Center.
