BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Jan. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The votes are in and the Four Seasons Diner in Toms River, New Jersey has been named the overall most popular diner among New Jerseyans in the first-ever Palisades “Jersey Diner’s Choice Awards.” To celebrate, Palisades, the Nice New Jersey car insurance company, and the Four Seasons Diner will host an afternoon-long event on Jan. 21 with Chef Duff Goldman from the Food Network series, Ace of Cakes, and randomly chosen voters who participated in the Jersey Diner’s Choice Awards program.
“Good food, great people and an afternoon with Chef Duff Goldman; I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Four Seasons Diner in New Jersey,” said Ed Fernandez, president and CEO of Palisades. “I’m happy that Palisades has been able to bring together so many people through this campaign honoring the state’s most popular symbol.”
From Oct. 21 through Dec. 7, New Jerseyans logged on to Palisades.com to nominate and vote for their favorite New Jersey diners in eight fun categories – Best Burgers, Best Breakfast, Best Fries, Best Salads, Best Cakes & Pies, Best Specials, Most Jersey and Nicest. The Four Seasons Diner rose to the top and was selected to host the event with Chef Duff.
