Perhaps because it's a Friday and I'm a bit hungry, but Pernod Ricard's idea to launch a 'London Steak Awards' backed by its Argentinian wine brand Graffigna seems like clever marketing. 

The company is asking the city's carnivores to nominate their favourite steak restaurants, via Facebook and the hashtag #meatymalbec. A panel of judges (can I be one?) will then visit four short-listed eateries, with the winner announced on 18 May. 

A quick glance at Twitter shows that people have already been voicing their opinion on who should win. After all, everyone has an opinion on food, don't they? Meanwhile, Graffigna gets a nice little plug with every tweet. 

For the record, Hawksmoor's Covent Garden outlet gets my vote.
