Quay receives acclaim as Sydney’s best restaurant
Quay has completed a stunning few weeks with the award for Best Restaurant in the Sydney Morning Herald’s 2009 Good Food Guide awards. The recognition comes after receiving the prize for Best Australian Restaurant in the Gourmet Traveller awards a few weeks ago – marking the first time that a restaurant has won both awards in the one year.
The Good Food Guide’s co-author Simon Thomsen reported that Quay was recognised due to the memorable experience that it offered consumers. “[Quay chef] Peter Gilmore has a very exciting restaurant,” he told the Sydney Morning Herald. “It’s really fun with spectacular food, fascinating ingredients and a stunning location.”
The harbourside restaurant, which grows their own herbs and vegetables in the Blue Mountains, is now a three time winner of the coveted honour, with previous wins in 2003 and 2005.
Justin North received acclaim as Chef of the Year, with his restaurant Becasse also claiming the runner-up prize in the Restaurant of the Year category. Other winners included James Perry of Oscillate Wildly for Young Chef of the Year, and ARIA restaurant for Wine List of the Year as well as being the other runner-up in the Best Restaurant category. Berowra Waters Inn took out the Best New Restaurant award.
