The Michelin Star man himself, Heston Blumenthal, is trying to convince the powers-that-be to award Michelin Stars to Australian restaurants, and online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has come up with a market on which eatery will be the first to be recognised.
Shannon Bennett’s Vue de monde in Melbourne is the $3.00 favourite to make Aussie culinary history, but Quay is flying the Sydney flag at $3.50.
A Michelin Star would look nice on Neil Perry’s apron should Rockpool get the nod at $7.50, while Tetsuya’s ($8.00) has long been recognised as world class.
Attica has consistently appeared in the world’s best restaurants lists and is priced at $11 to add at least one Michelin Star to its impressive CV.
“Our traders cettainly had fun eating their way through the contenders in the name of research before coming up with Vue de monde as a worthy favourite,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
