Watch for our 2017 Best of Western New York winners coming soon! If you are a winner and are looking for the Best of WNY toolkit, please click here.

 

​Buffalo Spree magazine’s eleventh annual Best Of list covers dining, theater, visual art, music, politics, sports, media, shopping, services, natural beauty, and more. As always, we have used a combination of public poll and expert panels to arrive at the final winners. We have high expectations for our list and need to make sure that the recipients are truly deserving—not just winners of a popularity contest. We hope you agree; we also hope we’ve added to your 2016 “to-do” roster.
