CC’S BAR AND GRILL WINS BEST RESTAURANT AS NORTH QUEENSLAND AND NORTHERN TERRITORY’S BEST RESTAURANTS, CAFÉS & CATERERS FOR 2022 ANNOUNCED.
Restaurant & Catering Australia (R&CA) today announced the winners of the 2022 NQ/NT Restaurant & Catering HOSTPLUS Awards for Excellence. The Awards for Excellence program formally recognises hospitality operators across a broad range of categories who consistently provide exceptional service and demonstrate culinary excellence in their respective fields.
Restaurant & Catering (R&CA) CEO Belinda Clarke congratulated each of the winners on behalf of the Association, recognising their significant contributions to the NQ/NT hospitality sector.
“R&CA’s Awards for Excellence is one of the most important nights on the hospitality calendar. It is always such an amazing experience to recognise some of the state’s finest hospitality businesses who showcase the very best our industry has to offer”, Ms Clarke said.
“This year's winners include household names such as CC’s Bar and Grill by Crystalbrook, who won Restaurant of the Year, The Chambers Café in Cairns who was hailed as best cafe, and Catherine Pacey of Wild Thyme who was awarded this year’s Chef of the Year.
“Other categories this year include hospitality awards such as Restaurateur of the Year & Manager/Supervisor of the Year as well as the announcement of a new Lifetime Achiever.
“After two years of hardship, the industry is now facing new challenges that require new solutions to fix them. Among others, rising cost of business and staffing shortages have made it so hard for hospitality to do what it does best. Tonight, is a true display of what it takes to survive and thrive in such trying times and all the winners should be immensely proud.”
