Vancouver, BC (April 23rd, 2014) – The Hawksworth Restaurantteam was thrilled to take home the top award last night for Best Upscale Restaurant at the 25th Annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards.
Holding on to the Best Upscale top spot for the third year running Chef Hawksworth said, “This year’s competition was incredibly strong and our entire team is honoured to be recognized in this category once again. The arrival of smaller restaurants and newcomers entering the spotlight this year is inspiring and we send our sincerest congratulations to all the winners.”
The Vancouver Magazine judging panel recognized that:“Not only has Hawksworth’s kitchen maintained supremely high standards, the brigade has been relentless in sharpening and refining every dish. Flavours from Chinese, Indian and Japanese cuisine are incorporated with a delicious ease and confidence… As a result the food, free of flash and fashion, is better than ever.”
In the Best Downtown category, Hawksworth Cocktail Bar received considerable recognition, tipping Head Bartender Cooper Tardivel for his “inventive, thoughtful retro cocktails like the Income Tax (c.1926) and a plate of the more-ish Korean Fried Cauliflower… won’t break the bank but will send your Tuesday night into overdrive.”
General Manager Chad Clark added, “Our incredible staff is the anchor to the continued success of our restaurant and I extend my personal thanks to the entire team, in particular Denisa Johnova who was acknowledged in the Premier Crew category.”
Held at the Sheraton Wall Centre yesterday evening, these 25th Anniversary Vancouver Magazine Awards reinforce Hawksworth Restaurant’s position as Vancouver’s leading dining venue and are a tremendous measurement of success for the team.
