Yeah!!!  Congrats to this well deserved restaurant for the award.  That really is quite an honor.  I just ate at Bright Star for the first time in November and you can read about my visit here:

I got very confused at the forum title as to why a period drama with Abbie Cornish would win a food award.  :)  Congrats Bright Star!
