A moody candlelit basement at Restaurant Hubert’s was the scene of this year’s Gourmet Traveller Australian Restaurant Awards. The drinks were plenty and the food was abundant over the course of the glamorous evening when Australia’s leading chefs and restaurateurs gathered to celebrate the country’s best culinary talents.
The recently refurbished Quay led by internationally acclaimed chef Peter Gilmore, received the most prestigious Australia’s Restaurant of the Year award, showing that the future of luxury dining remains bright in Australia.
This was a standout year for regional Australia. Ali Currey-Voumard, of The Agrarian Kitchen Eatery in New Norfolk (TAS) was awarded Best New Talent, Laura, the eatery in a winery on the Mornington Peninsula was named New Restaurant of the Year, and Brae, in the Otways of Victoria, won Regional Restaurant of the Year.
