To qualify for a score of 6 in the guide, restaurants must demonstrate ‘exemplary cooking skills, innovative ideas, impeccable ingredients and an element of excitement.’ The Michelin Star restaurant’s Head Chef Steve Smith was praised for his ‘creative modern cooking’ with ‘great technical skill, good combinations and interesting ingredients’. Whilst one reporter claimed the restaurant was his ‘best dining experience all year’.
Steve Smith said: ‘We are absolutely thrilled to have again been awarded a score of 6 in the Waitrose Good Food Guide! We feel especially privileged as The Good Food Guide is one of the most valued in the business, and it makes the award that much more significant when you know it’s come from customer feedback and opinions.’
To qualify for the awards, restaurants need to be independently run and offer regional or local produce. The awards are voted for by 30,000 members of the public who submit nominations for their favourite restaurants.
Steve Smith has held a Michelin Star for over 10 years from the age of just 24, and has been at Bohemia for only 14 months. He has already taken the restaurant to new heights by creating a truly outstanding dining experience with his ingredient and flavour driven tasting menus.
