The winners of all award categories, except for the people’s choice, will be selected by a panel of leading business figures and will be chaired by the Mayor of Hackney, Jules Pipe. 
He said: “The nominations put forwards show the tremendous variety of restaurants, cafés and bars in our borough, helping to make Hackney second-to-none across London as a cultural, leisure and night-time destination.”

The awards ceremony will take place next month.
