TripAdvisor, a leading travel site, has announced the winners of its 2012 Travelers’ Choice Restaurants awards. The inaugural awards recognize favorite dining establishments in popular cities worldwide, based on traveler reviews and opinions on TripAdvisor.

In total, 576 restaurants around the world were honored, including travelers’ overall favorites, plus travelers’ favorites in the U.S., Europe and popular travel destinations. Restaurants that offer dinner and table service were eligible for the awards.

Meanwhile, TripAdvisor also has launched Local Picks, a Facebook app that provides dining recommendations from locals and friends to discover and choose the best places to eat. (Read: Hi Facebook Friends, Which is the Best Restaurant?)
