Best of…Hartford?

The Hartford Advocate’s 2010 Best of Hartford Readers’ Poll results were released. Congrats to:

  • La Paloma Sabanera — third place for Best Local Coffeehouse
  • The Russell — third place for Best Jamaican Restaurant and third place Best Soul Food
  • Tangiers — second place for Best Middle Eastern Restaurant (not in Hartford)
  • O’Porto —¬† Best Portuguese Restaurant

I take food seriously and was glad to see these folks made the list.

Congrats also to:

  • Jumping Frog — third place Best Indie Book Store
  • WWUH — second place Best College Radio Station (not in Hartford)
  • Urban Compass — third place for Best Local Blog (should have ranked first, in my opinion)
  • Connecticut Science Center — Best Local Attraction
  • Maria Rodriguez — Best Local Hero
  • West End — Best Neighborhood*
  • Frog Hollow – third place Best Neighborhood*
  • Bushnell Park — second place Best Park¬†

Asterisks indicate problematic category, as second place winner for Best Neighborhood is not in Hartford and is more of a business district than actual neighborhood.
