Best of Syracuse® is a reader-generated poll trademarked by the Syracuse New Times. Each year we ask our readers to nominate in seven categories: Metro Living, Sports & Leisure, Love & Sex, Going Shopping, Food & Drink, Arts & Entertainment and Family (formerly the Besties Awards from our sister publication, Family Times).
Your nominations are tallied, and the results bring out the top five in each category. We then turn it all over to you again for the final voting, and the Best of Syracuse emerges.
We are proud of the fact that Best of Syracuse is 100 percent reader-generated. Next year we plan to add more categories. If you have an award suggestion, email us at [email protected]. We want to hear from you.
Thanks to all of the readers who took the time to nominate and vote for your favorite picks. It was another record-breaking year for nominating and voting for Best of Syracuse, and we couldn’t be more excited about the responses. Congratulations to all the nominees and winners this year!
