Best of 417 2011

Sixty-three readers' choice awards and 49 editors' picks recognizing the Best of the best in 417-land.

DISCLAIMER: The information in this article was fact checked and accurate at press time, but 417 Magazine cannot guarantee its accuracy indefinitely.

Oh, we love February. February feels like a party. February is when we publish our annual Best of 417 issue, and it’s when we get to celebrate all the things that make our region a wonderful place to live. The magazine staff even hops in a party bus to bring that celebration to the winners.

As usual, we turned to our readers first. We asked you to vote on 63 categories and tell us about your favorite restaurants, people, places, services and shopping in your neighborhoods and towns. In the end, we had a big list of the things you love the most, and this issue is where we get to share them.

But that’s not all we did. We also came up with 49 Editors’ Picks—categories and winners that we thought deserved a shout out in 2011. Read on, and you’ll see what you (and we) chose as the most delicious food, the most fun personalities, the top-notch services and so much more.
