The Taste Plate Award winners have been chosen following the 16th annual Taste of Muskegon event held last weekend.

Taste of Muskegon wrapped up its 16th festival on Saturday, June 11, with the annual Taste Plate Awards ceremony. Over 30 local restaurants and food trucks competed for judged and public-vote honors.

“Muskegon was ready for a party. We saw record-setting crowds both nights,” said Lisa Kraus, marketing director for Taste of Muskegon. “Our culinary scene in Muskegon is hot. We had impressive menus from all the restaurants and trucks. We hope everyone discovered new locally owned favorites.”
