Edited by Myffy Rigby, The SMH Good Food Guide 2016 showcases the best places to eat in Sydney, and throughout regional NSW...For over 30 years the release of Australia's most prestigious restaurant bible has been the biggest event on the local food calendar. We scour NSW to find great places to eat. Only the very best restaurants are featured in the Guide. To be listed, a restaurant must score a minimum of 12 points out of 20. The very best restaurants are awarded the coveted chef's hats - a sign of consistency and excellence. We make some tough calls and some bold ones, without fear or favour, tackling local legends and up-and-comers alike. Some don't make the cut. Our reviewers dine anonymously and pay for their meals to deliver independent advice you can trust.

With 15 years in the restaurant industry from her days as a short order cook, terrible waitress, fish wrangler and much later, restaurant critic for Sydney's Time Out, she is one of the city's most prominent voices in the Food and Drink scene. Last year she co-authored the cookbook Recipes for a Good Time (Murdoch Books). No cheese is too stinky, sandwich too enormous, no drink too full of whiskey. And if you can set fire to it, all the better.
