The most anticipated issue of the year—the annual Best of Maple Grove—sheds light on the people, businesses and services that make up the fabric of our incredible community.
We appreciate those who participated in this year’s readers’ poll. Adding a few new categories to the bunch (Best Pizza, Best Plant-Based Menu, Best OBGYN and Best Jeweler), we took in your recommendations to provide you with a comprehensive list of your favorites on page 24. Though our list captures an array of well-deserved winners and finalists, the rest of this issue includes a variety of stories showcasing the rich history of the city, a few urban oases to visit and the increasingly popular game of pickleball.
Paying homage to one of our newest categories, writer Daniel Huss gets his hands on great grub from three Maple Grove joints that are serving up the juiciest plant-based burgers.
My Editor’s Picks on page 26 covers elements that don’t necessarily fit into the realm of the polls but are just as noteworthy. Focusing on the fine arts, I share a roundup of local creative hubs that provide resources to emerging
artists of all types.
Cheers to the Best of Maple Grove 2022.
Until next time readers!
