How does the Good Food Guide 2018 Chefs hats for Canberra restaurants compare to 2017?

Eightysix

Eightysix

The Good Food Guide 2018 Chefs hats for Canberra restaurants came out today to a growing list of restaurants. I wondered if any Canberra restaurants were kicked off the list and decided to do a comparison with the 2017 list. So here is my analysis:

  • Aubergine, Griffith (retained two hats)
  • Ottoman Cuisine, Barton (picked up a second hat)
  • Lilotang, Barton (retained one hat)
  • Eightysix, Braddon (retained one hat)
  • Monster Kitchen and Bar, New Acton (retained one hat)
  • Temporada, Civic (retained one hat)
  • Chairman and Yip, Barton (picked up one hat)
  • Italian and Sons, Braddon (picked up one hat)
  • Otis Dining Hall, Kingston (picked up one hat)
  • Pulp Kitchen, Ainslie (picked up one hat)
  • Courgette, Civic (lost their only hat)
  • Lanterne Rooms, Campbell (lost their only hat)
  • Pialligo Estate Farmhouse, Pialligo (lost their only hat)
  • Waters Edge, Parkes (lost their only hat)

Do you agree with the judges' assessment? Are there any Canberra restaurants that aren't on the 2018 list but should be?
