Orinoco: tiny but powerful.

And the final four are ...

Toro vs. Hungry Mother


Orinoco vs. East Coast Grill

In Round 4, Toro took down Hamersley's Bistro by 236 votes, or 57 percent. Hungry Mother pulled it out from under the Franklin Cafe with 21 votes. Orinoco beat Blue Ginger by 193 votes, or 55 percent. And East Coast Grill trumped Eastern Standard by 349 votes, or 60 percent.

Perhaps the biggest surprise is that Orinoco is still in it -- the little engine that could. East Coast Grill was powerful enough to defeat second seed Craigie on Main in Round 3, however. Who do you think will prevail?

To me it's looking like an ultimate faceoff between Toro and East Coast Grill, but as we've repeatedly seen, in Munch Madness anything can happen.

Voting for this penultimate round goes through April 1. Then it's on to the championship. Cast your vote for the Final Four here.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
