No awards this year

February 26, 2010

I’ve  just been advised that there will be  no Nottingham Restaurant Awards this year,  the organisers deciding to focus on the city’s Food and Drink festival. Sadly this  means my services as a judge are not required.  I’m sure you all gutted for me. This has consistently been one of my favourite times of the year – last year I had three splendid meals at the Tarn Thai in Hockley and Memsaab and Chino Latino on Maid Marian Way. The last two especially are warmly recommended next time you are out and about in the second city of the East Midlands.  

The Leicestershire and Rutland Awards have not run for a couple of years because of the difficulty in finding a headline sponsor. Ok, it’s not exactly the worst thing that’s happened in the recession but nonetheless it’s disappointing the county can’t support community-building initiatives like this which can provide rewards and incentives for good restaurants.
