This news follows hot on the heels of the announcement of the changes to the judging process for the Eat Out Restaurant Awards, which includes multiple assessments, anonymity and the use of South African-based judges.
"We're taking Eat Out to a new level and giving every restaurant the chance to earn their place in the 'Eat Out 500' - a power list of great restaurants across South Africa," says Anelde Greeff, Content Director for Eat Out.
The call to action turns up the heat and shifts the onus onto the restaurant to put themselves forward in a simple process. Restaurants are required to complete and submit a two-page form
(downloadable pdf) or online form
, by the due date, 30 June 2013. Thereafter, submissions will be scored on a variety of criteria by a panel of 50 of South Africa's top food/restaurant industry experts. The criteria include food (menu composition, seasonality, presentation, wine, etc.), service and ambience. The 500 restaurants with the highest aggregate scores will appear in the 16th annual issue of the Eat Out magazine, which will go on sale in November 2013.
