The 5th annual Best of West Hartford event was a wonderful way to network over fantastic food and wine provided by Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar. This award ceremony and networking event brings together hundreds of West Hartford, CT area small business owners to announce those who earn the title of “Best of West Hartford”.

How do we know they are the best? Each of the 100 finalists and 50 winners had been chosen by popular vote. Local businesses across all industries from home improvement to baking were nominated by friends, neighbors, and loyal customers. 

The Best of West Hartford celebration event is made possible by a collaboration of local entities. The event occurs annually and this year it was hosted by Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar (who was also a winner of the coveted “Best Fine Dining” award!). The event was produced by WHMedia, and presented by EDENS. UBERDOG, Daley Moving, and Storage and Companions for Living sponsored the design of a breathtaking sculpted ice luge by Ice Matters. The luge was used to chill the prosecco that was generously provided by West Side Wines.
