UK: AA Rosette Awards

The AA today announces the latest recipients of its coveted Rosette awards with 13 establishments all gaining three prestigious AA Rosettes.  The higher AA Rosette awards, awarded just twice a year, celebrate the exceptionally high standards of cuisine that these restaurants offer.
Six of the new three Rosette awarded restaurants are in London, while the remaining seven range from Scotland to the New Forest.  
The new three Rosette restaurants are
•    The Ritz, Piccadilly
•    Viajante, Bethnal Green
•    Gauthier, Soho
•    Koffmann’s, Knightsbridge
•    Roussillon, Pimlico
•    Maze, Grosvenor Square
•    Royal Oak at Paley Street, Maidenhead
•    Lower Slaughter Manor, Gloucestershire
•    Peacock at Rowsley
•    Kenny Atkinson at the Orangery, Darlington
•    Limewood, Lyndhurst
•    The Black Swan, Oldstead
•    The Torridon, Torridon
AA Hotel Services manager Simon Numphud said, “I am delighted to welcome thirteen further restaurants into the higher Rosette awards. AA Rosettes are awarded in recognition of high-quality cooking and it is wonderful to see chefs throughout the UK continue to challenge themselves and hone their skills, with the teams at restaurants such as The Royal Oak at Paley Street and The Black Swan having worked justifiably hard to make the transition from two to three Rosettes. This year we recognise emerging talent such as chef-patron Nuno Mendes at Viajante, in addition to established names that have moved onto pastures new such as Kenny Atkinson at the Orangery and the eponymous Koffman’s and Gauthier.
“Restaurants serving food of a three Rosette standard are worthy of recognition from well beyond their local area and I am delighted that these thirteen very deserving restaurants have been acknowledged for their efforts.”
AA Rosettes are awarded solely by AA Hotel and Restaurant Inspectors with no influence from hotels, restaurants or other guides. The AA Rosette scheme has long been established and successfully recognises cooking at different levels nationwide. The success or failure in achieving Rosettes is based on at least one visit to a hotel or restaurant. Essentially it’s a snapshot, whereby the entire meal including ancillary items are assessed.  Of all the restaurants across the UK, approximately 10% are of a standard which is worthy of one Rosette and above.
