TWO Wexford restaurants have been honoured in the 2018 YesChef awards.
Warren Gillen, from Cistin Eile, in Wexford town, won the national Contemporary Irish Dining Award and Casual Dining Restaurant of the Year for Leinster; and Wild and Native, in Rosslare Strand, took the award as the Seafood Restaurant of the Year in Leinster.
Now in its fifth year, the YesChef awards was held in The Limerick Strand. With a full house of 450 guests, the evening was a celebration of the hospitality industry in Ireland, with a focus on recognising those in the front line of an ever changing and challenging culinary landscape. This year there were 68 awards recognising and honouring chefs, hoteliers, restaurateurs and front of house teams.
