Metro judge shares key criteria in Best Destination Restaurant award
The Metro Peugeot Restaurant of the Year Awards 2018 kick off
The countdown is on to find the best restaurant in Auckland, which will be awarded the prestigious title of Metro Peugeot Restaurant of the Year 2018 on April 30. There are more than 40 criteria considered by the panel of judges in picking the Top 50 Auckland restaurants – watch the video above for more details.
A rigorous process, finding the city’s best restaurants involves our judges anonymously eating many, many meals over a period of three months followed by fierce debate across several meetings. We consider the merits of more than 100 restaurants each year and with the number of restaurants in the city having increased at an exponential rate in the past 12 months, competition is tough.
To kick things off, we’ve shortlisted five finalists for this year’s Peugeot People’s Choice Award for Best Destination Restaurant. It began with a trip to The Hunting Lodge in the heart of Kumeu’s wine country, and on the way we interviewed a Metro restaurant judge about what goes on behind the scenes in the search for Auckland’s top 50 restaurants.
