Harvey Nichols is toasting success after our Head Chef scooped top honours at this year’s Bristol Good Food Awards. Louise McCrimmon, from our stylish Second Floor Restaurant, picked up the award for Best Chef. Along with her team, she was also highly commended in the Best Restaurant category.
Louise has been at the helm of our award-winning restaurant since it opened in Bristol in 2008 and has quickly gained an enviable reputation for offering some of the finest dishes in the South West. With a passion for local produce and top quality ingredients, her exciting menus have won a legion of fans, from national food critics to the city’s trend-setters.
“It is such a pleasure to be honoured in these prestigious food awards for doing something I absolutely love,” explains Louise. “It is a privilege to work in a city that recognises its vibrant food scene in such a way.”
Categories in The Bristol Good Food Awards were opened to public voting in May before a team of expert judges picked the winners from the shortlist.
“To be judged not only by a panel of experts but also by the people who eat in our restaurant every day is such a huge honour,” adds Louise. “This award recognises the hard work and dedication from the whole team at the Second Floor and we couldn’t be more proud.”
