Financial Review’s Top 100 Restaurant Awards

New South Wales’ Sepia wins the top honors at Australian Financial Review’s Top 100 Restaurant Awards

Sepia signThe preferences of 500 Australian chefs and restaurant owners have formed the inaugural The Australian Financial Review Top 100 Restaurant Awards, with Sydney’s Sepia nabbing the top spot. Directed by noted Fairfax food critics Jill Dupleix and Terry Durack, the awards traversed Australia to find places worth eating as farflung as Victoria’s Beechworth (Provenance), South Australia’s Seppeltsfield (Hentley Farm) and Western Australia’s Cowaramup (Vasse Felix Restaurant).
