From the Editor: Celebrating The Best



Every July greenwich magazine celebrates something other than our nation’s independence. We celebrate you!

For eight years now we have asked you to vote on your favorite restaurants, nightlife hot spots, boutiques and more. And thousands of our readers have done just that. This time a record number of you (nearly 10,000!) voiced your opinions via our online poll. It’s heartening to see how strongly you feel about your go-to places.

Keeping our “Best Of” package fresh and engaging is a priority. So this time, in addition to the 180-plus categories of reader and editor picks, we turn to local celebrities and some of our winners to find out where they like to dine, shop and play. We also break out those who garnered the most votes in Greenwich alone into their own special section.

The one tough choice we have to make with this issue is deciding who to put on our cover. This year we selected Sasa Mahr-Batuz, co-owner of Barcelona Restaurant and Wine Bar. Barcelona has been a staple of the Greenwich scene for ten years. With a perfect mix of great food and good times, it’s no wonder it has found its way onto our “Best Of” list every year. It seems that every night is party night at Barcelona.

And since over here at Moffly we would never miss a party, we would also never ever miss an opportunity to throw a party. Come celebrate the Best of the Best at two fantastic parties this summer. Join us on Wednesday, July 18, for the Best of the Gold Coast at the Stamford Hilton from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. and on Thursday, August 16 at the Delamar Hotel for the Best of Greenwich from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Both nights are filled with fun, food—and yes, freebies. Visit ilovefc.com for tickets and information.
