Pair of Wicklow restaurants scoop prestigious honours
TWO Wicklow restaurants took home honours at the recent Food & Wine/Maison Louis Latour Restaurant of the Year Awards 2013 at the Gala Hotel, Dublin on Sunday, August 25.
A Caviston in Greystones won the Recommended Restaurant Award for Leinster, while Campo de' Fiori in Bray took home the Readers' Choice Award, as voted by readers of Food & Wine Magazine, at the award ceremony which is considered one of the most prestigious on the Irish culinary calendar.
Both restaurants – as well The Strawberry Tree in Brooklodge and Chakra by Jaipur in Greystones – were nominated for the Best Restaurant in Leinster Award, which was won by Champagne in Kilkenny City.
Daniel Cruikshank of A Caviston and Marco Roccasalvo of Campo de' Fiori also received nominations for the Best Chef in Leinster prize.
