Vancouver Restaurant Awards 2012

The results are in! This year is Vancouver Magazine's 23rd Annual for Best Restaurant Awards. 

It seems like David Hawksworth cleaned up the house this year after a 3 year hiatus.  Besides Restaurant of the Year, they voted it Best New Restaurant, Best Upscale Restaurant, and cited it for Best Design. Wine director Terry Threlfall was named Sommelier of the Year and-to top if off-Hawksworth himself was voted Chef of the Year.
