Gawker

walked away as the Reader's Choice for Best New York Blog, while Gothamist was runner-up. Since our second-best company includes Best Not-Runners-Up: Pastis and Nobu (Best Not-New-Scene; Winner: Balthazar) and Il Mulino (Best Italian; Winner: Babbo), Piano's (Best New Nightclub; Winner Crobar), and Jean-Louis David (Best Haircut Under $50; Winner: Astor Place), we're chuffed (adjective meaning only...usually). Thanks to everyone for their support.
