Food & Beverage At The Australian Open This Year

Each January, Melbourne plays host to the who's who in tennis at the first Grand Slam of the year, an event that also regularly welcomes leading and emerging talents from across food and beverage.

The ever popular Beach Bar at the Australian Open welcomes acclaimed chef Josh Niland, owner of Sydney's renowned Charcoal Fish restaurant and a former speaker at our annal Food & Beverage Trend Summit. Josh is bringing the Charcoal Fish concept to the tournament, at which he's reportedly brought over a tonne of fish to serve up in his own unique ways.

Chef, restaurateur, former Masterchef Australia finalist and proud Bundjalung woman of the Widjabul Wia-bul clan Mindy Woods brings an Indigenous offering to the Western Courts. Melbourne's beloved Ca Com joins the line-up with their locally revered Bahn Mi. Whilst Andrew McConnell's Asian-inspired restaurant Supernormal will be pleasing diners at the tournament with dishes such as tea-smoked duck with anise caramel and burnt mandarin.

Alongside the food, from over 25 restaurants in total, is a host of other exciting hospitality including bars, cafes, live music and much more.
