A Taste of Lewiston returned to Center Street after a decade hiatus, and drew consistently large crowds all day on Saturday. On the one rain-free day this week, local residents and visitors from across the country descended upon the village to sample items from more than a dozen restaurants, and sample goods from another dozen vendors.
Spice Harbor, pictured below, took first place in the Best Healthy Options category. The food store served a fresh chicken shish kabob made with Memphis dry-rub, low-country marinade, and sugar, spice and smoke rub.
The list of festival winners - as voted by the people - included:
  • Best Festival Item: Casa Antica
  • Best Dessert: The Village Bake Shoppe
  • Best Display: Gallo Coal Fire Kitchen
  • Best Healthy Item: No. 1, Spice Harbor, $500 prize; No. 2, 700 Center Street Bistro, $250; No. 3, The Spicey Pickle, $100
  • Best Pizza: Favorite's
Corey McGowan Productions and The Lewiston Council on the Arts presented a Taste of Lewiston. Find more festival information at www.coreymcgowan.com.
Niagara Frontier Publications Managing Editor Joshua Maloni served as king of the Taste of Lewiston.
Casa Antica had a line about 10-deep for most of the day.
