If you're an adventurous diner, times have never been better,
and we'd like to think the places and faces shortlisted for this
year's GT Restaurant Awards are doing their bit. The winners will
be announced at the awards ceremony that launches our 2013
Australian Restaurant Guide next month, along with the big one:
Restaurant of the Year. We hope you'll join us in September.
