We reveal Londons restaurants, bars, chefs and dishes that restored our cheer this year.
You've heard what we rated as the best in London and now we need to know what you think.
When, like us, you're always looking out for what's new in town, it can be all too easy to overlook restaurants that have stood the test of time. The Hot Dinners Top 40 is our chart of London's great restaurants - all of which have been open for longer than six months. Each one is worthy of a visit by anyone interested in good food.
We told you all about our favourite places to eat in 2017 and then we asked you to let us know what your favourite new restaurant of 2017 was. And you didn't disappoint us. Now the votes have been tallied and we have a winner....
2017 may have been an annus horriblis for the world in general, but as far as the London restaurant scene is concerned it was quite a different story. We pick out the restaurants where we had the most memorable meals in over the course of 2017
