As Hong Kong finds itself in the fifth and most severe wave of the COVID-19 pandemic yet, Tatler Dining pressed ahead with our annual awards ceremony this month, albeit safely in an all-new virtual format that continues to stay true to the founding mission of the awards programme—to celebrate the achievements of Hong Kong's F&B industry at large.
The 2022 edition of the Tatler Dining Awards was live-streamed on YouTube at 7pm on Monday, 21 February 2022. While current government restrictions prevented our marquee event of the year from being held amidst the company of friends, colleagues and industry leaders, we have nevertheless endeavoured to capture the travails, camaraderie, reflection, and perhaps even glimmers of hope that everybody involved in the food and drink trade is collectively feeling at this most challenging time in recent memory.
Reflecting the creativity and tenacity of the F&B industry, this year's winners and nominees have demonstrated daring and resilience to earn a spot in the running for each of our awards. Also new to this edition is the Impact Award, given to a group or individual who has made a real impact on Hong Kong's dining scene in the last year, while the Best Sommelier award makes a return to recognise an individual who not only knows their wine, but elevates the dining experience with their curation and recommendations.
Without further ado, read on to find out the full list of winners and nominees for the Tatler Dining Awards Hong Kong 2022.
