Delhi’s most exciting culinary awards have generated a palpable buzz among the city’s foodies. The proof lies in the number of votes received over the last three weeks — more than 60,000 votes, and counting! With only 10 days before our voting lines close, the excitement is building up.
The HT City Crystals People’s Choice Awards 2010 are all about gourmands in the city putting on the food critic’s hat to pick the best among the best restaurants and bars. 200 restaurants are pitted against each other in 20 cuisine categories, while 27 nightspots are vying for the Best Bar award. The nominees have been picked by HT City and will feature, as the city’s Top Tables, in our 2010 Eating Out and Night Out Guides, that will be launched later this month.
Foodies in the city are eagerly awaiting the gala awards night, when they’ll get to know whether the diner or bar that they have voted for has claimed top spot.
Snigdha Pattajoshi, 23, an IT executive, wants All American Diner to be the winner in the Best Bistro/ Diner/Deli category. “It is the peppiest, most happening place... My friends and I go there often. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it wins.”
Aditya Kaul and his friends, on the other hand, are cheering for Smoke House Delhi.If you haven’t already cast your vote, there is still time! Here’s how it works. Today and the following week, we’ll carry a list of all the 200 Top Table nominees and 27 Top Bars, along with their respective voting codes.
