2020 Best of 225 Awards

Even in a pandemic, you showed local businesses the love.

This year’s Best of 225 Awards are uniquely meaningful. Our online voting period in March fell right at the beginning of Louisiana’s COVID-19 outbreak. At first, we worried readers might be—understandably—too preoccupied by global events to cast votes. But Capital Region residents quickly proved us wrong.

You showed up in near record numbers to put your support behind your favorite shops, restaurants, bars, events and people.

These are your longtime favorites, your rising stars, YOUR picks for the best our city has to offer.
