The Good Food Guide 2019 by Waitrose & Partners (GFG), the first with new Waitrose & Partners branding and the sixth edition published by the retailer, has 14 restaurant listings for the Channel Islands, one of them in the Top 50.
The Good Food Guide lists the very best restaurants and eateries across Britain and is highly regarded by chefs and diners.
In the 2019 guide the No.1 spot has been awarded to Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Cornwall for the second year running. Bohemia in Jersey is the only restaurant in the Channel Islands to be featured in the Guide’s Top 50.
But there were three new entries onto the list from the Bailiwick: Octopus in Guernsey and La Sablonnerie and Stocks, both in Sark.
Both Da Nello and La Fregate already featured in the guide, and once again did this year.
In total, there were nine restaurants in Jersey that made the guide, with Bohemia coming in at No. 14 with a cooking score of 8, indicating "a kitchen cooking close to or at the top of its game. Highly individual with impressive artistry. There is little room for disappointment here."
Elizabeth Carter, Editor of The Good Food Guide, said of Bohemia: "the identity carved out by Executive Chef Steve Smith is clear: to take the best ingredients, from the island if possible, and use the ability of his talented brigade to create plates of food where invention, looks, seasonality and taste meld with a sense of generosity."
