Though Four Finches, 1320 Sherman Ave., earned the highest portion of the 91 poll votes with 37 percent, FlowersFlowers edged it out as the winner by pairing 16 percent of the vote with four glowing, five-star business directory reviews. MilleFiori!, 1943 Central St., finished in third place with 14 percent of the vote.
Reader MJ Lutz praised FlowersFLowers in her review:
“Wonderfully creative florist who makes you believe that your event is the most important one on her calendar! Respectful of budgets and has the rare ability to understand what a client really wants.”
Reader N. Saksa also raved about the store:
“There is really a big difference between the quality and designs that are from FlowersFlowers and what you receive from other florists. If you read the reviews that Joanne gets from all different people including wedding couples you will know that you are not dealing with an ordinary florist here. She and her staff are miles above the rest!”
Thanks to everyone who participated. Next week, we’ll be asking residents where to find the best brunch in Evanston.
