Big wins for Tate, Delifonseca and Hope Street Hotel in 2014 tourism 'Oscars'
 

DELIFONSECA swept to victory yet again, last night, in the city's tourism "Oscars".

It picked up the Taste award for best restaurant, at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards. Meanwhile, its manager Danielle Youds was crowned tourism champion in an award voted for by the public.

In a tightly fought contest,  Spanish restaurant and deli Lunya came a close second, taking the highly commended place. Other contenders were New Brighton's Caffe Cream, Malmaison Brasserie and the London Carriage Works. 

The venues were among some of the area's top tourist attractions, restaurants and bars who gathered at St George's Hall for the black tie event, back this year after an absence in 2013.

The rather swishy gala dinner attracted hundreds of people from the industry who were greeted by Brazilian drummers and dancers. Guests also gave a standing ovation to the cast of the Lion King, who came straight off stage at the Liverpool Empire to perform the finale.

Tate Liverpool's Chagalle exhibition scooped two honours, while Liverpool Empire veteran Lilian Moore won the award for Outstanding Customer Service.

As a new hotel seems to open every week in Liverpool, Hope Street Hotel was voted the best of the heap.

West Kirby's Wro picked up the Bar of the Year accolade, beating the bar at the Malmaison and The Hub Alehouse and Kitchen. 

The awards, held on behalf of the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, was hosted by a travel journalist called Simon Calder.

The posh scouse, made by Liverpool Yacht Club, who did the catering, wins Liverpool Confidential's own award for the best thing on a plate this week.

"The awards, held on behalf of the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, was hosted by a travel journalist called Simon Calder." That acknowledgement seems a bit mean for the man who was frequently on telly and wireless as the BBC's travel expert for about a decade until very recently!
