on merit


"Colleagues, you know how I do not like all kinds of restaurant awards!

Some are completely "bought," the jury members themselves do not know who they vote for, the PR workers decide on the third, agreeing on everything with the organizers and making a show from the award.

The fourth deliberately put forward stars or some popular guys so that they everywhere won this award.

In a word, I always say that we have no prizes.

And, perhaps, only the Russian Hospitality Awards are the only prize that I believe and in which I am happy to participate, but it, unfortunately, is "hotel."

I was in the jury, talked with everyone, gradually saw by what principles the winners were formed and I can frankly say: everything is extremely honest and truly here.

I hope that someday our restaurant awards will become the same, "commented Sergey Mironov
