Could you be a part of Eastside's 2017 Restaurant Awards judging panel?

We need an Eastside reader to help us find our region's best restaurants

We want to give Eastside readers a voice on the independent judging panel that decides the ultimate prize – the Eastside Restaurant of the Year.


The search is on to find one reader to join with our other judges, all chosen for their knowledge of food and their passion for dining out on the Eastside scene, to eat together at some of the region’s finest restaurants before deciding which venue should be named as Eastside’s Restaurant of the Year.


You can leave your credit cards at home; all we want is your opinions. And you will need to clear your diary for a few dates later this year when we bring the judges together to dine out and make their choices.


Does this opportunity tickle your tastebuds? To apply for a place on our judging panel, please email the editor, Chris Wilson, at and tell him in no more than 150 words what qualities you think the judges should be looking out for in the search for Eastside’s Restaurant of the Year.
