It has been a great year for new bars and restaurants – and now it’s time to decide who’s the best. Time Out’s Food & Drink Editor Guy Dimond and his diligent team have drawn up shortlists and are anonymously revisiting all venues to see if they still live up to their early promise. Categories include Best New Bar (on the shortlist: Experimental Cocktail Club, Worship Street Whistling Shop, Booking Office, Zetter Townhouse) and Best New Cheap Eats (on the shortlist: Ariana II, KaoSarn, Manchurian Legends, Meza). More are to follow; we’ll post them up right here on the blog as they are announced so stay tuned. Have your say on Time Out’s Facebook page now. Winners will be announced in October 2011.
