Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Awards finalists announced

Australian Gourmet Traveller magazine has just announced the finalists for its 2019 Restaurant Awards. Each year, the awards honor the best in Australian restaurants from wine lists to service to, of course, the food. As has been the case in recent years, several of the chef finalists have written highly-regarded cookbooks.

Dan Hunter’s phenomenal eatery Brae received a nomination for Best Regional Restaurant. The competition this year is stiff – Brae is going up against Aaron Turner’s restaurant Igni. Turner’s book, named after the restaurant, features an EYBD Preview – be sure to check it out to get an idea of the dishes offered at Igni, which Gourmet Traveller sums up as a “masterclass in balance.”

Perennial award recipient Neil Perry’s latest spot, Sydney’s Rosetta, is also up for an award. Rosetta – similar to Perry’s Melbourne restaurant of the same name yet distinguished from it – is vying for the New Restaurant honors. See all of the nominees – including rising talent to keep an eye on – at the Gourmet Traveller website.
