Birthdays, engagements, anniversaries, graduations — landmark occasions such as these call for a certain calibre of restaurant. While perhaps not a place you visit every week, these stellar establishments are where we share our greatest joys, providing the backdrop for moments we remember forever. From innovative fine dining restaurants to impeccable brasseries, we trust these places to bookmark a special chapter in our lives with effortless aplomb. While we’ve dined far and wide to develop this shortlist, a celebration is all about one person, so there’s no better person to cast the final vote than you. If there’s another restaurant close to your heart that you think may have been overlooked, be sure to add them in the comment box.
Everybody who votes goes in the draw to win one of three $1000 vouchers to be spent at one of the American Express Local Dining Collection locations — a list of which can be found here.
Voting has now closed. The 2022 Denizen Hospo Heroes presented by American Express will be announced in the Winter issue of Denizen magazine (released on 23rd May, 2022).
