It has been a great year for new bars and restaurants – and now it’s time to decide who’s the best in another two categories. Time Out’s diligent Food & Drink editors 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 Design (on the shortlist: Massimo, Nopi, Riding House Café, Spuntino) and Best New Haute Cuisine (on the shortlist: Dinner by Heston Blumenthal (above), Hedone, Medlar, Pollen Street Social). More shortlists will 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.
