Chef and owner Debbie Ponzek of Aux Delices was picked best pastry chef, and the shop itself was named "best muffins" in the magazine's food-and-drink category. Greenwich's Rebecca's was chosen best restaurant at which to splurge on dinner. In the nightlife category, Greenwich's brand new The J House won best hotel bar.
Several Greenwich shops ranked in the style category, including Shoes N' More (boutique shoes), Vineyard Vines (men's ties) and Tahiti Street (swimsuits). Greenwich Avenue, which the magazine called "Connecticut's prime shopping mecca," was chosen best place for splurge shopping.
