Georgia Straight Golden Plate Award Results 2012

Every year, the Georgia Straight asks readers to vote for their favourite restaurants for a variety of different categories and they give out golden plate awards to the restaurants with the most votes. The results were released recently and the complete list of winners can be viewed on the Georgia Straight website.

Hawksworth Restaurant that opened this year in the Hotel Georgia, was a clear favourite coming in third for best restaurant overall, first for best fine dining, and first for best hotel restaurant.

I was surprised and disappointed at some of the winners for the categories. White Spot won the best budget restaurant which is ridiculous because their food is mediocre at best and not that cheap. The best mid priced restaurant results are almost the same as the best chain restaurant results, which is disappointing and uninspiring. Vancouver has so many amazing restaurants and I wish there was a wider variety of winners among the different categories.
