The ‘Best of Greenwich’ is celebrated

GL-FTR-Best-B-8-23If you are looking for the Best of Greenwich then you didn’t have to look far last Thursday night. All the winners of that designation were in one place at the same time.

At the annual celebration of Greenwich Magazine’s Best of Greenwich list, which was published in the magazine’s July issue, there was live music, wine and plenty of opportunities to sample what is considered tops in the town at the Delamar Hotel. Guests packed the hotel’s outdoor areas and even inside to enjoy food and drink from the winners, which was not only an entertaining evening for them, but also a feather in the cap for the honored businesses, which got a chance to interact with people, provide samples and maybe win a new customer or two while taking a bow.

Maria and Sabrina DiMare were there for the seventh time, winning Best Bakery and Best Dessert for DiMare Pastry Shop in Riverside.


“It’s a huge honor and very prestigious,” Sabrina DiMare said. “Our clients are the ones that voted for us so it’s good to know they think so highly of us. It’s great for people to hear about us and see we’ve won this award. Hopefully more people will come in. Every time we do an event in town we try to get one or two new people to come in.”

Lance Kasak, partner in Byram’s Burger, Shakes and Fries, has also been a multi-year winner, and he said it’s a real achievement to be declared as having the Best Burger in town.

“This is our business. This is our life,” Mr. Kasak said. “We set out to have the best burger in town.”

But some of the winners were there for the first time.

Joey B’s in Cos Cob is under new management since the beginning of the summer and they’re already on the list. Joe Champagne and Domenick Delfino were there to represent the restaurant and get the word about the new dinner menu and the fish fry they hold.

“It feels great to be here,” said Mr. Champagne. “It really boosts the morale.”

The Cos Cobber has only been open a year and in that year they’ve earned the honor of Best New Restaurant and Best American Restaurant.

“We are prouder than you could ever imagine,” Chris Frattaroli, co-owner of the restaurant with his wife Caren said. “We’re happy to be celebrating with everyone in town.”

The night was done to benefit the United Way of Greenwich as a fund-raiser.
