At this year's FOOD&WINE Awards, in association with Rémy Martin, the readers' choice award will honour the wonderful businesses that people really rate and choose to return to often.

In other words, this one is all about you. We want to hear about the food spots you love, recommend to friends, and visit time and again. It could be your favourite restaurant, local café or a pop-up that really did things well. Perhaps there's a street food vendor you often find yourself going to or a fantastic takeaway that offers restaurant-standard food. 

As this award is voted for by the public it really is a special honour for any business to receive. Previous winners included Vermillion in Dublin (2015 and 2016), Kin Khao Thai in Athlone (2014) and the much missed Campo de Fiori in Wicklow (2013).

The readers' choice award is the only award that is not judged by our national culinary panel on judging day and the shortlist is crafted from the places people love and frequent. Throughout the month of July you’ll be able to vote for your favourites from a shortlist but for now, we want to know your picks for the best spots around. You can nominate here.
