Your Call

There aren’t many things that can whip the Moffly Media office up into a frenzy. Over the years, we have gotten used to busily preparing for a big event or rushing to meet an editorial deadline. But there’s something uniquely energizing about our annual “Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut” issue. I suspect it has to do with that word “best.” Those four little letters immediately trigger skepticism in anyone who sees them, quickly followed by an unqualified, arms-folded-across-the-chest: “Prove it.”

As the voting results for the Best Of section flowed in, we weren’t surprised to find ourselves alternatingly nodding and shaking our heads. For the magazines, it has as much drama and fixed loyality as the NBA Playoffs—though my uniform includes white jeans and Tory Burch flats.

Mostly, we were happy to applaud for the shops and services that you, our readers, collectively hoisted to the tippy top of the list. When we were disappointed that a long-held favorite—a “must have”—didn’t make it, we did our best to muffle an admonishing, “Bah!”

Of course, I’m just kidding. I think this guide is truly remarkable, and I’m delighted and proud to present our readers’ votes. As you peruse the section, you should run across some old favorites and a few new ideas.

To turn up the heat on this annual feature story, we added a special section. In past years, we gave you winners from throughout Fairfield County; this time, we not only do that, we also focused on our hometowns: Westport, Weston, Wilton, and Fairfield. This new section should be eye-opening to long-time residents and helpful to new neighbors and visitors.

Enjoy the read, and let me know what you think.
