The annual That’s Food & Drink Awards is back! Don’t miss out on your chance to nominate your favorite venue for a well-deserved award.

This year will be the first time ever that the That’s Food and Drink Awards will expand its coverage to the Greater Bay Area. In this new and improved phase, the That’s GBA Food and Drink Awards will be awarded to those excellent businesses in the food and drink section of the Greater Bay Area.

2022 was another tough year, but we get the sense that there are better times ahead for GBA’s buzzing F&B scene – all the more reason to support your favorite venues!

We would normally open the nominations and host a ceremony in December. However, we’re aware that during that time, many of us were more focused on recovering from fevers than thinking about awards.

But, better late than never, right?
