Chef Ben Shewry’s restaurant jumped Sydney’s Quay, which fell almost 20 places to number 48.

Shewry, a New Zealander, tells Fairfax Media: “It takes time to build a reputation. But we’ve always done the same thing. I’m very black and white. I’ve always done what I wanted to do – work with the best products, things that interest me – being honest, being generous… And not giving a shit.”

Two Sydney fine dining institutions – Tetsuya’s and Marque – have fallen completely out of the top 100 list after slipping from the top 50 in recent years, while David Chang’s Momofuku Seibo, a Sydney newcomer, crept into the top 100 at 89.
