Recap: Restaurant Bracket Challenge, Round 1

Voting for Round 1 of the KCRA 3 A-List Restaurant Bracket Challenge came to a close last night cementing the matchups for Round 2. The first round was just as exciting as it was unpredictable.

In what turned out to be the most hotly-contested matchup, Mulvaney's B&L eeked out a win over 5-time A-List winner Scott's Seafood Grill & Bar. The second closest matchup featured The Waterboy vs. Mikuni with The Waterboy emerging over the 6-time A-List winner for Best Sushi.

The other restaurants to advance were Biba Restaurant, Tapa the World, El Novillero, Ella Dining Room and Bar, and Tower Cafe.
