Read in Parliament on November 16 2016:
"I draw the attention of this Parliament to the restaurants across the electorate of Newtown that have recently been honoured in the 2017 Good Food Guide Awards. I congratulate the teams at Ester in Chippendale, Oscillate Wildly in Newtown and Sixpenny in Stanmore for their remarkable efforts in receiving two chefs hats in the awards.
I also congratulate the eight restaurants who received one hat including Izakaya Fujiyama, Vini and Porteno in Surry Hills, Kepos Street Kitchen in Redfern, LP's Quality Meats in Chippendale, Hartsyard and Stanbuli on Enmore Rd, as well as Newtown's Continental, which also took out the Bar of the Year award. Congrats to Bovine & Swine Barbecue Co. who picked up the Best Cheap Eats prize and Tim Watkins of Automata in Chippendale who picked up Sommelier of the Year. A special shout out to Parliament on King on South King Street, who won the Food for Good award celebrating innovation and charity and going above and beyond to contribute to the community."
