Pics – Best of Gold Coast Connecticut


This year marked the eleventh anniversary of Moffly Media’s Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut which celebrates and honors the best of everything that Fairfield County has to offer from restaurants to retailers, spas, caterers, bands and much more. The highly anticipated event was held on Thursday, July 23, at the Hilton Stamford and showcased the winning products, goods and services of Moffly’s annual readers’ and editors’ survey.

Since its inception, Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut winners have been chosen by the readers of Moffly Media’s five award-winning town publications and are announced and featured in the July/August issues of Westport, New Canaan-Darien, Fairfield Living and Stamford magazines, and the July issue of Greenwich magazine, all of which hit newsstands on July 1st. This year’s readers’ and editors’ survey received a record-breaking 86,000 votes! Weeks of voting and extensive planning culminated in an evening of excitement and fun.

The “Best Of” winners from categories such as food, drink, fashion, jewelry, things to do, and more, came together in one night to showcase their signature products, goods and services that were voted the Best in Fairfield County.

The party attracted more than 1,500 guests and over 100 participating restaurants, retailers and entertainers to the spacious and elegantly adorned Hilton Stamford Grand Ballroom. This year’s event featured a VIP pre-party which started at 6 p.m. VIP ticket holders were offered one hour exclusive early access to all of the event’s sponsors and vendors.

The evening was made possible by this year’s presenting sponsor Stella Artois, Stella Artois Cidre, Gold sponsors Hobbs, Inc., JP McHale and Orvis, Silver sponsor New Country Porsche of Greenwich and Business level sponsors The TNS Group, Exhale Spa, Albe Furs, Pacific Swim Bike Run, Little Barn, The Chelsea, Aetheria Spa, Pray Body Shop, Specs, Joyride, Massage Envy, Split Rock Aesthetics, Orangetheory, The Waters Edge at Giovanni’s and H Salon.
