“What good new restaurants should I try?”
Broadsheet’s editors field this question, or a variation on it, most days. While we’d just as soon recommend one of Melbourne’s straight-up best restaurants or a long-standing institution, the pull of a hot new place is hard to deny.
So here it is: our edit of the best new restaurants in Melbourne from the past 12 months, updated monthly. Some of these places are redefining the way we eat and will go on to become classics. Others will be shorter lived. Either way, these are the spots we’re enjoying eating and drinking at in January.
