Good Food Guide Awards in Melbourne
Melbourne will play host to the Australian food industry’s annual night of nights in October.
Revealing the best restaurants, bars and chefs from across Australia, the national Good Food Guide Awards 2019 will take place at Crown Melbourne on Monday, 8 October 2018, with Visit Victoria joining the partnership line-up.
Victorian Minister of Tourism and Major Events, John Eren, says, “Victoria had a starring presence at last year’s Good Food Guide Awards, with Attica winning Vittoria Coffee Restaurant of the Year, Kylie Millar taking out the Josephine Pignolet Young Chef of the Year and Arlechin nabbing Bar of the Year, as well as a trio of Victorian restaurants—Attica, Brae and Minamishima—receiving three hats in Good Food Guide.”
Further supporting the guide’s national expansion, Good Food Guide 2019 will be published by respected lifestyle publishers Simon & Schuster Australia, marking the start of a three-year publishing partnership with Fairfax Media.
The national Good Food Guide, launched last year, independently reviews restaurants, cafes, bars and cheap eats across every Australian state and territory, making it the most trusted source of information about where to find the best— and hatted—venues in every capital city and beyond.
The 2018 edition of the guide saw more than 500 restaurants from Darwin, Hobart, Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Canberra reviewed, with 270 of these achieving hat status, ranging from one to three.
Along with the hats and reviews around the country, the coveted Vittoria Coffee Restaurant of the Year, Citi Chef of the Year and Citi Service Excellence will also be awarded nationally in 2019.
Good Food Guide editor, Myffy Rigby, says, “This is the second year that the Good Food Guide has encompassed all of Australia, and I couldn’t be prouder to shine a light on outstanding hatted restaurants nationwide—from exceptional restaurants in rural South Australia, through to beachside dining in Western Australia, and hidden gems in the backstreets of Tasmania.
“Every year, we go in hungry and leave more excited than ever to share these restaurants and dining destinations with our readers.”
Good Food Guide 2019 will be published in October 2018.
