TV Chefs Snubbed In Restaurant Awards

message posted 23-Jan-07 17:19:04
The finest dining rooms, from a West End institution to a new pan-Asian restaurant, are named today.

The shortlist for the annual Tatler Louis Roederer Restaurant Awards is dominated by London restaurants, with 85 per cent in the capital.

They are notable for the absence of famous chefs and celebrity hangouts. None of Gordon Ramsay's restaurants receives a mention.

Jamie Oliver, Jean-Christophe Novelli and Hester Blumenthal are also left out but old favourites such as Joe Allen in Covent Garden and Le Gavroche in W1 and newcomers such as Gilgamesh in Camden and Scotts in Mayfair are nominated.

Jeremy Wayne, Tatler's restaurant editor, said: "There will be some surprises.

The bottom line is it is about the food. We like real places which serve the best food that doesn't cost the earth."
