MELBOURNE | After a successful 2015 in New York City, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards are coming to Melbourne in 2017. The awards will be hosted at the UNESCO Heritage Listed Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton on the evening of 5th April 2016. It’s not just about the single night though – in conjunction with Tourism Australia, there will be a range of food events highlighting Australia’s unique produce, brilliant wines and dynamic dining scene across the entire first week of April.

The awards time in Melbourne also coincides with Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, and as part of the programme, many of the world’s top chefs will be running master classes and sharing their skills and knowledge with Melburnians.

At The City Lane we’re obviously huge fans of Australia’s food and drink scene, and we think it’s great that the World’s 50 Best Restaurants are coming to Melbourne. Since the start of Tourism Australia’s Restaurant Australia campaign in December 2013, international incremental spending on food and wine has increased by more than $1 billion or 25%. One in five dollars spent by international visitors in Australia now goes towards food and wine experiences. After April 2017, this can only get better.

Keep your eye out for more news as the event draws closer, we’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date on all of the good stuff.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
