By March 5, 2014Connecticut, Top News

Nine local restaurants participated in the first martini competition sponsored by the Newtown Chamber of Commerce. Any creation could be submitted. Approximately 200 guests sampled martinis and enjoyed a variety of food offerings from the various restaurants. Winners were decided by guests’ votes. Each guest could select up to two of their favorites. Participating restaurants included Sal e Pepe, Fusion 25, My Place, Toro, Tambascio’s, The Inn at Newtown, Foundry Kitchen & Tavern and Sweet Mango. The popular vote put My Place in first place and the Foundry Kitchen & Tavern in second. Photos provided by MartiniHunter.com
