Thank you for nominating and voting for all of your favorites! Congratulations to all of the finalists and winners in Orange and Chatham Counties.

While Best of the Triangle has been running for two decades now, astute readers and INDY fans will notice that we’re doing things a little differently from now on. Instead of presenting all winners in all categories, ranging from restaurants, bars, and yoga studios to hair salons, museums, and preschools, all at once, we’re running individual contests and presenting winners in different categories one county at a time—Wake, Durham, and Orange/Chatham.

At the end of the year, INDY will put the best of each region against one another in the “Best of the Best” for a shot at the true “Best of the Triangle” crown.

Peruse the digital flipbook below to see the finalists and winners from each category. Congratulations again to the winners!
