Time Out names the Delaunay best new London restaurant in 2012

Rex Restaurant Associates' Delaunay has been named London's best new restaurant in the Time Out Eating & Drinking Awards 2013.

Jeremy King and Chris Corbin's restaurant in Aldwych, which is inspired by the Grand Cafés of Europe, marked the start of the duo's expansion, which has since also seen the opening of Brasserie Zédel and Colbert.

The Delaunay beat stiff competition to win the title of best new restaurant, including Dabbous, Bistro Union and sister venue Brasserie Zédel.

Meanwhile Mark Hix's Tramshed in Shoreditch, which serves a limited menu of chicken and steak, was named Time Out's best new meat restaurant, with Virgilio Martinez's fine dining Peruvian restaurant Lima winning the inaugural best new Latin American restaurant award.

Time Out‘s food and drink editor Guy Dimond said that despite the tough economic climate 2012 had been a great year for going out in London as operators are embracing new trends. "London's hospitality industry seems to be laughing in the face of recession," he said.

"Restaurateurs have adapted to changed circumstances by creating no-bookings restaurants, which have faster turnover; with a trend for simpler restaurant food, exemplified by the explosion of meat and barbecue joints; and by embracing more casual drinking venues but with no compromise on the thrill of the drinks offered, which you find in the new craft beer bars."
