WHY: The Berwyn Development Corporation (BDC) asked the public to take a dive into deep sea inspired dishes in search of Berwyn’s Best Seafood. Seafood is an easy meal choice when there are various ways to eat it. From wood grilled to sandwich style to salads and pastas, the options are aplenty in Berwyn. There can only be one winner, though—help the BDC find the most sensational seafood fare in our quest to crown Berwyn’s Best Seafood.

Round 1 included a poll of 11 Berwyn-based establishments that serve seafood on their regular menus. The public was asked to select up to five of their favorite seafood establishments.

The top five establishments that received the most votes identified their favorite seafood dish for the second round of voting. These selections are:
