Cultler & Co has won Gourmet Traveller’s Restaurant of the Year Award at a ceremony held at Flower Drum last night. Of the 400 restaurants listed in the magazine’s Australian restaurant guide, Culter & Co and Vue du Monde were the 2 Melbourne restaurants of 7 that were nominated for the award.

Culter & Co was named the magazine's favourite for its casual bistro-style dining, energetic service and thoughtfully executed food by one of the country’s best chefs, and one of our favourites, Andrew McConnell.

Victorian restaurant in Dunkeld, the Royal Mail Hotel, took out the award for Regional Restaurant of the Year.
