SMH Good Food Guide

The SMH Good Food Guide results were announced in Sydney 7 September.


Six restaurants shared top honours and were awarded three chef's hats, however it was the absence of Claude's that was the talk of the evening. In total twenty hats were stripped from restaurants while only 14 new hats were awarded. L'etoile was a surprise inclusion after the mediocre review it received in the Good Living, while Neil Perry's Rockpool Bar & Grill jumped straight into two-hats, presumably a big relief for Perry and his 35 million dollar investment.


In the night's top honours culinary alchemist Mark Best was awarded Best Chef and was also given the nod for favourite bargain with his Friday lunch special. Quay Restaurant, led by Peter Gilmore, was awarded restaurant of the year for the second year in a row, It is the fourth time in the nine years that Gilmore has been at the helm, that this fine diner has taken out top honours. The inaugral award for sustainabilty went to Billy Kwong and Beppi Polese and his gorgeous wife Norma were celebrated for their 40 plus years in the industry. The quirky but interesting editor's picks include Ash Street Cellar as favourite wine bar and Deus Cafe winning favourite cafe.


L'etoile was a surprise inclusion after the mediocre review it received in the Good Living, while Neil Perry's Rockpool Bar & Grill jumped straight into two-hats, presumably a big relief for Perry and his 35 million dollar investment.
