It’s Eater Awards season: the time of the year when we honour the restaurants who shaped the way we thought about, talked about, and ultimately experienced eating out in London in 2019. This year — for the first time ever — we’re opening up a public call for nominations. We want to hear which restaurants impacted you, our trusted readers, the most while you were enjoying everything from fresh pasta and natural wine to roti canai and katsu sandos around London this year. Please note: All nominees should have either opened or come into their own in a new way since we declared the winners last year.
We want to hear from you about the restaurants — the most beautiful, the most influential, the most innovative, and truly the most delicious — that made 2019 a great year of eating. To nominate who you think deserves an award, let us know via this nomination form — or the same form embedded below — by November 10, sharing your nominee(s) for each category and your reasoning. Eater London will whittle down the nominees to three finalists, to be announced on November 18, in each of three categories. Then all you have to do is sit back, pop some popcorn or some fizz, and wait for the winners to be announced in December.
