The credit crunch's effect has widened to include this year's Time Out magazine Restaurant Awards, resulting in the creation of two new categories to please its sponsors - the Spanish Tourist Board - Best Spanish Restaurant and Best Spanish Wine List (which we didn't have the space/energy/sponsorship money to show here. Mind you, we do have to admit a conflict of interest - ever since the magazine gave Best Gastropub to the Marquess Tavern in 2006 - the sorriest excuse for a public house we'd ever encountered - we've had difficulty trusting these awards. But - should you be interested - here's the shortlist:
