The count is in. This year's Guide features more than 600 individual reviews and listings including dozens of Guide-worthy bars, cafes, pizzerias and local heroes.
In Sydney we've scored 40 brand-new restaurants, with several more returning following a revamp, a re-opening, or with a fresh new team.

It's evidence, if needed, that our restaurant world is an ever-changing, dynamic place to live.
