Vote now: Time to cast your vote to crown the best interiors in town

Sure, the food on your plate is what it’s all about… But have you ever walked into a restaurant and been lost for words? This new category is all about celebrating two of our great loves; mouthwatering food and really good design. Think of those eateries that people visit just to get the iconic snap; a space that leaves you drooling for more than just the menu. We’ve rounded up some of the best in the city, but we know that taste is subjective (and you’ve got a good eye), so vote for your pick of the best restaurant interiors below. Of course, if there’s a jaw-dropping you think we may have overlooked, be sure to add it 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).
