The Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut celebrated our area's finest businesses and their spectacular culinary and other creative talents as voted by the readers and editors of all five of Moffly Publications' magazines (Greenwich, Westport, New Canaan-Darien, Stamford and Fairfield Living).

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.
