As well as picking our favourite new openings, last month we called upon the help of Twizoo – an app that finds the best places to eat or drink based on Twitter buzz – to discover exactly the joints you lot enthuse about the most.
From over 150 places in the running, here are the official top 5, based on complicated algorithms that have crunched all those 140-character missives. And we’ve included some of the enthusiastic messages too.
