London: THE DELAUNAY NAMED AS THE CAPITAL’S BEST NEW RESTAURANT BY TIME OUT LONDON

Time Out London announces the winners of its Eating & Drinking Awards 2012.
 
Monday, 22nd October. Time Out London today announces the winners of its annual Time Out Eating & Drinking Awards, which recognises the best new bars, destination restaurants, and casual dining venues in the capital. The Delaunay, which takes inspiration from the ’Grand Cafés’ of the Continent, takes the accolade of Best New Restaurant.
 
All this year’s categories and shortlists reflect a busy year in fast-moving food and drink trends, from street trucks morphing into fully-fledged restaurants, to the boom in brewpubs and barbecue joints.
The Time Out London Eating & Drinking Awards draw on the expertise of the weekly magazine’s reviewers, using their up-to-date industry knowledge to celebrate the best new venues in London. The judges then anonymously visit all of the shortlisted venues to choose the winners.
 
This year's winners:
   Best New Restaurant – The Delaunay, Aldwych, WC2B
   Best New Cheap Eats – Boqueria Tapas, Brixton, SW2
   Best New Design – Mari Vanna, Knightsbridge, SW1X
   Best New Local Restaurant – Abbeville Kitchen, Clapham, SW4
   Best New No Bookings Restaurant – 10 Greek Street, Soho, W1D
   Best New Meat Restaurant – Tramshed, Shoreditch, EC2A
   Best New Latin American Restaurant – Lima London, Fitzrovia, W1T
   Best New Beer Bar – Crown & Anchor, Brixton, SW9
 
With a lively bar and culinary scene, the results indicate that Brixton has become destination for casual dining and drinking. The area is home to two winners this year, the Crown & Anchor, which has been awarded Best New Beer Bar, and to Boqueria Tapas, which has won the Best New Cheap Eats category.
 
Guy Dimond, Food & Drink Editor of Time Out London, comments, “London’s hospitality industry seems to be laughing in the face of recession. Restaurateurs have adapted to changed circumstances by creating no-bookings restaurants, which have faster turnover; with a trend for simpler restaurant food, exemplified by the explosion of meat and barbecue joints; and by embracing more casual drinking venues but with no compromise on the thrill of the drinks offered, which you find in the new craft beer bars. It’s been a great year for going out.”
Tim Arthur, Editor-in-Chief of Time Out London comments, “The capital is brimming with new venues and emerging trends, but 2012 really has been the year of the meat restaurant, with simple menus pleasing hungry diners. The chicken and steak menu at Mark Hix’s Tramshed took the crown in this category this year. We’ve also seen the rise of Peruvian food as Latin American restaurants pop up over the capital. The unusual ceviche dishes at the winning Lima London should not be missed.”
