The Sydney Entertainment Centre has been celebrated for its inspired cuisine, winning the title of the city’s best venue caterer at the 2011 Restaurant and Catering Awards for Excellence.
Announced last night by the national industry association Restaurant and Catering, the award recognises the best in the Sydney region and qualifies the Centre for a national accolade to be announced on October 24.
Sydney Entertainment Centre General Manager Steve Romer said the award was among the most prestigious offered in the restaurant and catering sector and provided welcome recognition for the Entertainment Centre’s catering team, headed by Food and Beverage Manager Dave Watts and Executive Chef Gavin McKevitt.
“The Sydney Entertainment Centre has placed a strong emphasis on providing fresh and creative catering at a standard well above expectations, so we’re delighted to have our efforts recognised among other industry leaders,” Mr Romer said.
“This award helps cement our motivation and focus to be not only one of Australia’s premier venues but also a leader in creativity and quality.”
The Sydney Entertainment Centre was chosen for the award from among finalists including Acer Arena (now Allphones Arena), Rosehill Gardens Event Centre and the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW. The Entertainment Centre was also a finalist in the category for best caterer at an event.
