Vote For Brighton’s Best Wine List In The 2019 Brighton Restaurant Awards

With the BAFTAs and Oscars lurking around the corner, it must be awards season. But forget all that Hollywood shizzle; I prefer something closer to home.

From 28th January 2019, the stars of Brighton and Hove’s rapidly-evolving culinary scene are set to be recognised, as voting gets under way for the third annual Brighton Restaurant Awards (aka the BRAVOs — Brighton Restaurant Awards Vote Online. They didn’t fancy the BRAs, for some reason).

And there are three new categories this year: Sustainable Eats, Best International, and (my favourite, quelle surprise) Brighton’s Best Wine List. Front runners here must include Ten Green Bottles, L’Atélier du Vin and The Wine Ninjas’ home-page stars Plâteau. But, let’s face it, there’s a hell of a lot of competition. Let me know who you fancy in the comments below.

There were an impressive 27,082 votes last year, equivalent to about 10% of Brighton and Hove’s population. Will anybody be able to knock 64 Degrees off their Best Restaurant perch this time? I reckon they will. (I might vote for Semolina, but don’t tell anyone).

Other winners in 2018 included The Basketmaker’s Arms (for Best Pub – no wonder you can never get a table); Tropical Sushi for Best Budget Bites (pictured top. And don’t they look happy about it); while Café Plenty (below) marched off with the Family Friendly Award. And they sure do look a friendly bunch — after a few Proseccos.

Voting ends after six weeks, on 11th March, so get your bib on and follow the link below. If you need further incentive, each vote lands you in a draw to win prizes worth up to £200, from Laurent Perrier Champagne to hampers from The Great British Charcuterie.
