The Restaurant Magazine UK National Restaurant of the Year awards took place last week at the Hurlingham Club in west London and London once again claimed many of the top prizes:

Highest new entry - Corrigan’s of Mayfair 

The Readers’ Choice Award - L’Anima in the City

Wine List of the Year - Boundary in Shoreditch

Family Restaurant of the Year - Le Cafe Anglais in Bayswater

Sustainable Restaurant of the Year - Acorn House in Bloomsbury

The Restaurateurs' Choice - Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester in Mayfair

Despite having to apologise to over 500 guests earlier in the year following an outbreak of norovirus illness at his restaurant The Fat Duck - in the village of Bray in Berkshire - Heston Blumenthal claimed the top spot for 2009. London, however, boasted almost half of top 100, twelve of the top 20, and five of the top 10, including Claude Bosi’s two-Michelin-star Hibiscus in Mayfair.
