Congratulations to the Dan’s best of the Best 2021 winners!

Spending any amount of time on the East End means enjoying the best that life has to offer, but with the area providing such a high standard of products and services, how does one know which are the best of the best?

Whether you’re looking for award-winning wineries or renowned restaurants, chic hotels or hot nightspots, world-class shopping and entertainment or the top providers of home and professional services, the way to discover the very best in the Hamptons and on the North Fork is by perusing the Dan’s Best of the Best winners list each year.

Since its inception in the 1990s, this list has been driven by the input and insights of savvy locals, visitors and second-home owners who know these businesses and individuals intimately. The latest edition of the Dan’s Best of the Best winners list, sponsored by East End institution Dime Community Bank, is the culmination of tens of thousands of votes in the 2021 Dan’s Best of the Best competition, each placed by readers of Dan’s Papers, and Included are winners voted as the best in hundreds of categories that matter most to you, as well as our Hall of Fame honorees, which have stood the test of time, winning a Dan’s Best of the Best category 10 or more times over the years.

Follow these links and learn where to find the best burgers in the Hamptons, the best hair stylist on the North Fork — where to find stellar rosé or a reliable handyman. It’s all here, thanks to votes from readers like you.

And congratulations are in order for the winning businesses, organizations and passionate people crowned champions in this year’s competition! They’ve weathered quite the storm over these last two years and have not only survived, they’ve thrived in their communities and provided so much to us all on the East End. They truly are the best of the best.
