We like to think we have the best food writer in the biz, and the news from Association of Alternative Newsmedia's annual awards ceremony this past weekend in Salt Lake City backs us up.

Your humble and hungry dining editor, Doug Trattner, took home first place for food writing among the crowded and deserving crop of submissions from 2015.

That's no small feat, considering the competition from Texas, LA, New York and other foodie locales. You can read the winning entry, about how he's lifted more than 1,000 menus from restaurants and what his collection has taught him about Cleveland's resto scene, here.

Scene also took home four other awards, including second place for staff blog, second place for Oliver Barrett's fantastic illustration of Johnny Manziel, third place for staff writer Eric Sandy's story on a tragic assault on two transgender women in Lakewood, and third place for the annual Comedy Issue.
