What it means to be the ‘Best’

Now in its fifth year, we are proud to announce that Dime Community Bank has recognized the value that the “Best of Brooklyn” brings to the borough’s businesses. Dime is the naming sponsor of our program, now known as “Dime Best of Brooklyn.”

The Dime Best of Brooklyn program allows the public to nominate and then vote for the best businesses in the borough in a wide range of categories and sub-categories. In this issue we are celebrating the winners of the best restaurants, food, and bars & nightlife.

Hundreds of businesses are nominated and thousands of the public vote each year. There is only one first-place winner in each category crowned DIME BEST OF BROOKLYN.

The exposure of Dime Best of Brooklyn – affiliated with Brokelyn.com, BrooklynReporter.com, The Home Reporter, and The Brooklyn Spectator – is enormous for the businesses involved.

Our brand reaches over 25,000 Facebook followers and over 70,000 Twitter followers. With over half a million page views a month, we also reach over 30,000 with our email newsletter.

Each business that wins gets the right to utilize the “Best Of” logo/mark that is promoted in a tremendous amount of marketing including plaques, banners, print advertisements, digital marketing, social media marketing, outdoor advertising, email signatures, business cards and so much more. The Dime Best of Brooklyn is a badge of excellence that distinguishes the most outstanding businesses as chosen by Brooklyn residents.

The Dime Best of Brooklyn’s impact is undeniable—recognition means the world to the winners, and along with that distinction comes a great deal of pride.

We congratulate all of this year’s winners, and celebrate you as truly the best!
