Still basking in the glow of our Hot 50 Australian Restaurants selection by @the.australian and that we are now in their Hall of Fame (4+ years on the list). Restaurant critic @johnlethleandescribes his selection criteria for the Hot 50 as: “The restaurants in this list are there not only because they consistently excel in that holy trinity of food, wine, service, but also because they know how to tap into the Zeitgeist. The very best have an ineffable quality that every restaurateur dream of and so few attain. It’s an energy, and you can sense it the moment you walk in the door; an energy so tangible you could it eat it.”
