Welcome to the 2018 Yorkshire Evening Post Oliver Awards.Our annual celebration of food is now into its tenth year and is stronger than ever.The very best can be found in many and unexpected formats, but in this category we are looking for one quality – a venue that aspires to excellence in everything it does.We want this winner to strive for the best in surroundings, service, cuisine and presentation.There are more than a dozen categories to choose from and last year, we had more 300 individual category nominations.
This is the biggest awards ceremony for the dining scene in Leeds and the surrounding area, so if you love food as much as we do, get voting!
European food is and has always been close to our hearts.
It rightly has a reputation for stunning recipes, often challenging our perceptions but ultimately satisfying us. Our winner will serve up the best of Europe but will also have an eye on value, cost and great ambience.
Merely to provide the food of another country is not enough for our increasingly sophisticated palates.
That food has to be cooked to a superb quality and reflect the true character of the native dish.
Every year we receive dozens of calls for us to open up the awards to a wider audience and while our focus remains on Leeds, we are proud to recognise quality whatever its setting.
