Hats off to the winners of the 2018 National Good Food Guide Awards
It’s time to get started on your dining bucket list for next year – the 2018 Good Food Guide Awards winners have been announced and hats have been handed out. Last night, October 16, saw the coveted awards go national, ranking Queensland’s top eateries amongst the best in the country.
This year’s top accolade of Vittoria Coffee Restaurant of the Year went to Melbourne’s Attica, with praise given to the decade-old restaurant for sharpening its already remarkable offering since its renovation this year. New Restaurant of the Year went to the highly praised Saint Peter in Sydney, and Daniel Puskas of Sydney’s sixpenny was named Citi Chef of the Year. Queensland represented in the national awards, with ARIA Brisbane’s 1000-wine strong list awarded Wine List of the Year.
Queensland was certainly not short on hats this year, with a number of Brisbane restaurants maintaining or earning the coveted acclaim. Brisbane City’s Urbane was amongst only six restaurants nationally to be awarded three hats, rubbing shoulders with New South Wales’ Quay and Sepia, and Victoria’s Attica, Brae and Minamishima. Esquire, ARIA, Gerard’s Bistro, GOMA Restaurant, Stokehouse Q and Noosa’s Wasabi were each awarded two hats. Twenty-eight Queensland restaurants received one hat, with Brisbane restaurants including Gauge, The Wolfe, 1889 Enoteca, OTTO and first-time hat awardee Madame Rouge. Gold Coast certainly got a look in too – head over to The Weekend Edition Gold Coast for details. For the full list of the 2018 Good Food Guide Award winners, head to the Good Food website.
