Age Good Food Guide Best Victorian Restaurant & Chef of the Year

Those supremo meat-on-the-bone smokers over at restaurant Igni are wooing foodie aficionados left right and centre. Last night they took out the Age Good Food Guide’s best Victorian restaurant award, while Aaron Turner was singled out for the chef of the year gong. Birregurra’s Brae took out restaurant of the year, so in the words of the great EJ Whitten, the West “stuck it right up ’em.”
