Welcome to the Best of NH

Since 2000, New Hampshire Magazine has polled and published the picks of its readers and editors in categories that range from best cupcakes to best martini to best antiques shop and everything in between.

Voting in these categories takes place each year, starting in mid-January. Our online-only ballot is the best way for readers and customers to recognize the best of the best that the Granite State has to offer.

Our annual Readers’ Poll and extensive list of Editor’s Picks all lead up to the state’s biggest celebration, The Best of NH Party, which will be held at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester, NH, on Thursday, June 18, 2020.

2020 Best of NH Ballot

The 2020 Best of NH Ballot is now closed. Thank you to the nearly 13,000 people who took the time to vote for their favorite restaurants, shops and services.

Tallying 13,000 ballots by hand does take a few weeks, so we expect to notify winners by early April. The full list of readers’ poll winners, along with editors picks, will be included in the July 2020 issue.
