The Best of Stamford

Sure, it’s helpful to know about winners up and down the Gold Coast of Fairfield County, but we think it’s also amazing to find out who won best of Stamford categories. This is about town pride, of course (and maybe a dash of really not wanting to get on I-95 or the Merritt). So read on to see if your fellow readers picked the same places in the city that you think are the best.
