This month, we once again asked our readers to select their favorites for Best of the North Fork 2022.

Several thousand readers cast their votes from a list of favorites compiled by our staff.

We had more than 30 repeat winners from the first year of the contest in 2021, but also more than a dozen first-time winners, like Frisky Oyster for Best Date Spot, Stirling Sake for Best Asian Food and Nicolette’s for the Home as Best Home Decor Shop.

Some of the winners were decided by just a handful of votes, like The Times Vintage in Greenport narrowly edging last year’s winner, In the Attic Too of Mattituck, as Best Vintage Shop.

These are the 49 Readers’ Choice winners for Northforker’s Best of the North Fork 2022.
