Thank you to all of the readers, finalists and sponsors who joined us on April 27 at Eton Chagrin Boulevard for the 2023 Best of the East Party. More than 60 Best of the East finalists were on hand to showcase what's made them a East Side favorite. Guests were able to sample from this year's finalists and then cast a vote for their favorite finalist in each category.
