The classics and the new arrivals

The classics and the new arrivalsGetty

The food scene across the island of Ireland is thriving. With much-loved favourite spots still going strong and exciting new arrivals, it’s a great time for the industry.

In this year's FOOD&WINE Awards, in association with Rémy Martin, we want to celebrate the heroes of the dining scene in all regions. From the classic restaurant you’ve been frequenting for years to the promising new arrivals born out of hard work and a passion for food, let us know where you rate.

Best Classic Restaurant

They’re the restaurants that have stellar reputations, publicly or otherwise. In all corners, much-loved spots have devoted fans who know they’ll have a great experience whenever they visit. And the quality of food, service, and atmosphere, keeps them coming back. From the renowned likes of L’Ecrivian and Chapter One to the local gems like Cafe Paradiso and Beaufield Mews that keeps serving up fantastic food day after day, year after year. We want to know your favourite classic restaurant - let us know here.

Best Start-Up

It’s an exciting time for the food industry here and people passionate about all aspects of food are giving their all to bring their dreams to life. Undoubtedly setting up a business is a gamble and requires hard work, dedication and commitment - and there are many such projects making a mark on the food world: Cloud Picker and Blanco Nino Tortilla, to name just two. Do you know of a new restaurant, cafe or brand that excels? Nominate your favourite here.
