Charcoal Fish, Supernormal, Nomad, and More Offer Up Delicious Food at the Australian Open

The Australian Open is well and truly back, running from Monday 16 January right through until the Australian Open final on Sunday 29 January. As always, Melbourne is up and about as International tennis stars hit the city and fans can enjoy an uninterrupted tournament this year.

While plenty happens on court—albeit less with the withdrawal of Nick Kyrgios—there’s plenty that happens off court around Melbourne Park as well. Some of Australia’s best restaurants and bars will be setting up shop at the Australian Open in 2023, with the likes of Josh Niland’s Charcoal Fish and iconic Flinders Lane restaurant Supernormal headlining a list of 25 restaurants on-site.
