Now in its fourth year, the annual Australia’s Top Restaurant Awards presented by The Australian Financial Review were held at the Art Gallery of New South Wales last night.

And the big winner for the night was Brae (main photo) in the regional town of Birregurra, some 130 kilometres south-west of Melbourne. The eatery won best restaurant, best Victorian restaurant and top service team. The full list of winners are a the bottom of this article.

Australia’s Top 100 Restaurants are chosen by Australia’s top chefs and restaurateurs from an overall list of 500 restaurants compiled by The Financial Review’s top critics and editors.

This year, one in five restaurants are new to the top 100 list. There has been a real resurgence from Adelaide and South Australia’s wine-growing regions, and more from Tasmania than ever before, going from two to five in a confirmation of ‘the MONA effect’. Notable restaurants new to the top 100 list include some young-gun chefs such as Cormac Bradley at Gauge in Brisbane, Oskar Rossi at Fico in Tasmania, Nick Stanton at Ramblr and Ben Sears and Eun Hee An at Paper Bird in Sydney.

In other categories, Josh Niland from Sydney’s Saint Peter was named Australia’s top chef. Best newcomer went to Agrarian Kitchen Eatery in Tasmania and Sydney’s Firedoor won the The Rare Medium Award presented by Meat & Livestock Australia for setting new standards of excellence in red meat cookery.
