The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017 - Australia scores two - from Melbourne!

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017 - Australia scores two - from Melbourne!

Manhattan restaurant Eleven Madison Park took out top honours, knocking previous winner, Italy's Osteria Francescana, down one spot. Eleven Madison Park restaurateur Will Guidara accepted the award on behalf of all 150 staff, and spoke of the talent present in the room.

"We, all of us in this room, have dedicated our careers to creating experiences which we hope will become extraordinary experiences in other people's lives," said Guidara.

Rising one spot from last year to number 32, Melbourne's Attica is again Australia's highest-ranking restaurant, and was also awarded the title of Best Restaurant in Australasia. Dan Hunter's regional Victorian restaurant, Brae, came in at number 44, while, on the extended 51-100 list, Sydney restaurant Quay rounded off Australia's appearances at 95.

"This is a brilliant result for Brae," said GT Victoria editor Michael Harden. "It's an acknowledgement of the energy and passion of Dan Hunter and his team and how hard they work to ensure that the food and the experience at the restaurant is always evolving."

"Dan's driven by a love of the local and his degustation menus are abstract portraits of the surrounding region rendered in flavour. The food is as delicious as it is interesting, as fun as it is technically precise. I can't wait to see what comes next."

"I think this is a result for Australia that we can all be proud of," adds GT managing editor Pat Nourse, who also chairs the voting for Australia. "The representation on the list is great, but I think, in the bigger picture, having the awards in Melbourne and having such a large contingent of top international talent and press in Australia for the week should go a long way to getting the rest of the world up to speed with what we all know here: that Australia is a hell of a great place to eat and drink right now."
