Cuisine names its top 100 NZ restaurants for 2017

Cuisine's much-anticipated list of New Zealand’s top 100 restaurants has been released for another year, once again identifying and celebrating the very best dining experiences the country has to offer. Canterbury has scored a creditable 8 names on the top 100 list. The announcement nabs each restaurant named a coveted spot in Cuisine's annual Good Food Guide, and is effectively the first cut for the rigorous judging process for the New Zealand Cuisine Good Food Awards. The next step for the judges will be the awarding of "hats" (a rating system of 1, 2 or 3) and, at an awards dinner in early August, announcing the industry's very best individuals and businesses. Cuisine editor Kelli Brett says the awards are not only about New Zealand celebrating the best of its own, they also provide a guide for international attention on New Zealand cuisine.  She says: “We have restaurateurs all over the country doing incredible things and in a highly competitive industry, it is really something to be recognised at this level. On behalf of my team, congratulations to every restaurant who has made the list.”

Canterbury's entries on the top 100 list are:

Congratulations, people!
