JLT Restaurant Awards 2018: Thank you! It’s a wrap!
The gala ceremony for the second JLT Restaurant Awards took place on 26th November at Nara Pan-Asian Restaurant in JLT
The second JLT Restaurant Awards are over! The second edition of Dubai’s first ever hyper-local F&B awards attracted 89 nominations across 18 categories and recorded almost 10,000 online votes for the 16 publicly voted categories. The winners and runners-up were announced by the MC, blogger (A to Za’atar), and Zomato Ambassador Courtney Brandt, during a glittering gala, which was attended by 100 local restaurateurs, F&B professionals, and foodies.

We would like to thank all participating restaurants, partners, and sponsors, who helped us to make this event successful. Although, there were only one winner and one runner-up for each of the 18 categories, everyone who took part in the awards is a winner! Together, we put JLT’s burgeoning food scene on the map, created awareness, and – most importantly – forged connections and friendships between local restaurateurs, hospitality professionals, and foodies.
We hope to see you all again for the 2019 JLT Restaurant Awards!
