Lewisham Awards 2015 - 'Outstanding Local' Finalist
For the second year running, Stafford Road Wine Bar has been named a finalist for the 'Waterfront Auckland Outstanding Local' Award.
A record number of hospitality industry people have voted to choose the 2015 Lewisham Awards finalists announced this week.
With more than 10,000 votes counted, the finalists represent the leading lights of the Auckland restaurant scene as selected by their peers.
Lewisham Foundation chairman Chris Upton says an increase in voting by more than a third is testament to the respect the industry has for the awards.
“The Lewisham Awards recognise every aspect that contributes to the excellence of Auckland’s vibrant and diverse food scene whether it be a new chef, barista, supplier or wine list.
“The fact that we have had such an amazing response in the voting reflects the strength of hospitality right now. There is certainly a very positive vibe in the industry and long may it continue.
