“Restaurants are really the heartbeat of their communities; they’re where we meet for coffee and our kids celebrate little league games,” said Anthony Anton, WRA president and CEO.  “Because of this, it is always difficult to pick a winner for these awards, all of our members give back so much. Our winners this year are an excellent sample of what our industry looks like as a whole. Being able to recognize this great group of people is really an honor.”
