After more than a decade and a half of producing Best of Westchester issues, one might wonder, are there enough worthy selections left? The answer is a resounding YES!—and you’ll see why.
This year, our editors selected 147 “bests,” ranging from a stellar Port Chester seafood spot and an indoor skydiving facility in Yonkers to a SoHo-esque Chappaqua clothing boutique. The other 224 picks came from our readers (hey, it’s your county, too!). More than 12,000 of you cast votes in our online ballot between December 2015 and February 2016, determining the winners in all major categories but one: Food & Drink, where some 16,400 votes were cast during five elimination rounds. Clearly, you all have strong opinions about what to eat and drink in Westchester! So, happy Best Of browsing—and look for the winners (and samples of their fare) at our annual Best Of Westchester Party, on July 27, at Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle.
