LOS CABOS, BCS, November 26th The Organizing Committee of Culinary Awards presented, on November 22nd, a Restaurant Guide that recognizes the best locations in the gastronomic field in Los Cabos. The initial circulation was 15,000 copies as well as a digital version which makes it easy for residents and visitors to select a restaurant to suit their needs and desires.

With the support of the State Tourism Board (FITUES) and the Los Cabos Tourism Board (FITURCA), the Restaurant Guide will be distributed at fairs and events anywhere our destination is promoted, including in important cities of Mexico and the world.

The call for the 2019 edition has been announced. Once again, a panel composed of local diners will be given the task of visiting and evaluating all restaurants. This will be done anonymously while covering all costs incurred. Each juror will have a report card for each location visited. The evaluation process will be verified by the audit firm Crowe Horwath Gossler.

Restaurants can register from November 23rd until January 23rd, 2019 free of charge. Included in the benefits that participating restaurants obtain is the inclusion of their basic information in the next edition of the Restaurant Guide, as well as the possibility of obtaining a feedback report at the end of the evaluation process.

The general community can also support their favorite restaurants through an online vote. The Organizing Committee will seek the advice of the local community to determine the recipient of the Culinary Achievement, using an open survey.
