Buffalo Spree's 2018 Best of WNY winners


Buffalo Spree magazine’s thirteenth annual Best Of list covers dining, theater, visual art, music, media, shopping, services, nature, architecture, sports, politics, and more. As always, we have used a combination of public poll results 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 popularity contests. We hope you agree; we also hope we’ve added to your running lists of places you have to try and things you have to do.
