It’s been five weeks since we first sounded the clarion call for you, the reader, to put on the food critic’s hat and tell us which restaurants and bars rank as the best among the best, as part of the most exciting culinary awards in the capital.
200 restaurants in 20 cuisine categories, and 27 nightspots in the Best Bar category, are vying for top honours in the second annual HT City Crystals People’s Choice Awards 2010.
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.
And the votes have been pouring in — over 2,600 votes a day, almost 20,000 a week — leading to a grand total of 92,000, and counting!
Owing to the immense response from foodies in the city, we have extended the deadline for casting your votes — the closing bell will now ring at midnight on October 17, instead of October 10.
So if you are not among the 90,000-plus Delhiites who have voted, there’s still time. Here’s what you need to do. Refer to the list of all the 200 Top Table nominees and 27 Top Bars, along with their respective voting codes, on this page. We have been featuring the categories, along with our reviews for each nominee, for the last five weeks.
Inform us of your top choices through SMS, by logging on to our website, or by visiting the nominated restaurant, filling out a form and depositing it in a box placed there [check the boxes to the left for details].
Winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony in later this month. The final countdown to the city’s most exciting culinary awards has begun. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...
