Best of Westchester 2009



Has it been nine years since our first Best of Westchester issue? You'd think we would have found all the "bests" there are by now. But Westchester continues to supply us with great picks. (Westchester, the Best County in New York, anyone?) Not that it's easy to choose which restaurant offers the best burger, the most luscious lobster roll, pizza, or panini; who's the best yoga or hip-hop instructor; which is the coolest shop or hippest nightspot.  Throughout the year, we are on the prowl for the new, the different, and, yes, the best. And, as always, we ask you to weigh in, too.  This year, more than 1,100 of you sent in ballots voting for your Westchester favorites.
