Photos: Celebrating the 2023 Best of 225 winners at Chelsea’s Live [Partner event]

Nearly 200,000 votes were cast to decide the 2023 Best of 255 Awards. To celebrate the winners, 225 Magazine threw the Best of 225 Awards Rodeo on June 27 at Chelsea’s Live (2023 Best Live Music Venue). Congratulations to all of this year’s winners and runners up, and thank you to the 225 fans who beat the heat and joined us to party with the best.

Attendees wore their best rodeo-inspired outfits and enjoyed tastings from Chow Yum Phat (2023 Best Vietnamese) and Phil’s Oyster Bar (2023 Best Oysters) as well as cold drinks from Chelsea’s Live. VIP guests enjoyed a gorgeous spread prepared by City Pork Catering (2023 Best Caterer). Parish County Line (2023 Best Local Original Band) took the stage playing a variety of hits as guests flipped through the pages of 225 Magazine’s hottest issue of the year to discover the 2023 Best of 225 winners.
