Hawksworth Team Honoured by Hat Trick Win
24th Annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards
Restaurant of the Year
Chef of the Year, David Hawksworth
Gold, Best Upscale Restaurant
The Hawksworth Restaurant team returned to the awards podium to collect three of the city’s most sought-after titles, at the annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards.
Holding on to the coveted top spot for a second year running Chef Hawksworth said, â€œWe are elated, to secure three of the city’s most prized industry awards, not once, but now two years consecutively is beyond what we dared to wish for; my thanks goes out to the entire team.â€
The Hawksworth experience guided by Chef Hawksworth and executed by general manager Chad Clark, chef de cuisine Kristian Eligh, wine director Bryant Mao, and head bartender Cooper Tardivel was noted by judges for delivering consistency across the guest experience.
Of Chef Hawksworth, Vancouver magazine reported: â€œHe continues to astoundâ€ – high praise indeed from the venerable collection of judges at the helm of Vancouver’s highly revered dining awards. â€œA menu confidently straddling the Pacificâ€ touches on the overarching personality of Vancouver itself, with one foot in North America and one in Asia; contemporary Canadian cuisine at its finest.
Vancouver Magazine editor-in-chief, John Burns, describes Hawksworth Restaurant as offering â€œrisk-taking, world-class dine finingâ€ with other judges noting that Chef Hawksworth has â€œchanged the landscape of dining in this cityâ€.
