Two Greek Owned Places Make The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 2024

Alpha Restaurant Greek restaurant

The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 2024, featuring the best restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs across NSW and ACT, has launched with Margaret named Vittoria Coffee Restaurant of the Year at an awards ceremony held in Sydney. Sustainable seafood pioneer, Josh Niland, also took out the coveted Oceania Cruises Chef of the Year award. 

The annual Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide has been recognising the best chefs and restaurants since 1984, and this year’s Guide is a compilation of almost 500 independent reviews visited by our team of critics over the past six months. .

Greek Australians on the List

Happy Field -AMERICAN CAFE

Cafe of the Year went to Happyfield Chris Theodosi (front of house) and Jesse Orleans (chef)

If the sunny banana-yellow signage doesn't give you a sense of happiness and optimism, then get a tray of soft, fluffy pancakes with Pepe Saya butter and Canadian maple syrup, stacked with crisp bacon, or a gen-u-ine American burger. Coffee is Five Senses, even in the cold brew martini.

And Alpha restaurant kept its one hat run by Head Chef Peter Conistis is a pioneer of modern Greek food, with a robust understanding of Greece's tantalising cuisine. He delicately combines tradition with a twist.
