A note about the results:

"The magazine's Readers’ Choice restaurant survey was conducted online during September and October 2021. Voters were able to choose up to three restaurants in order of preference (with the votes weighted accordingly) in each category. Restaurants were limited to a maximum of four Readers’ Choice wins in the categories in which they received the most votes. After that, awards in further categories went to the next qualifying restaurant. Our panel of experts then recommended additional places in each category which they believe deserve recognition."
