1 Housed in the for­mer Prahran Post Of­fice, AN­GUS & BON (above) is a bois­ter­ous new steakhouse in Mel­bourne that de­liv­ers the goods. Namely, grass-fed aged beef, dry-aged wagyu and sea­sonal veg­eta­bles in­clud­ing sweet corn all charred on a wood­fired grill. Own­ers Liam Gan­ley and Mar­garet Law­less en­listed chef De­clan Car­roll (ex Rock­pool) as flame mas­ter, while de­signer Wendy Bergman fi­nessed the clubby in­te­rior.

2 THREE BLUE DUCKS are fly­ing north to set up at W Bris­bane (above), the new ho­tel open­ing this month. Chefs Dar­ren Robert­son and Mark Labrooy have con­ceived a menu that com­bines sig­na­ture dishes, such as span­ner crab scram­ble with green mango, with novel plates show­cas­ing eth­i­cally sourced lo­cal in­gre­di­ents. The sleek river­side ven­ture is high on glitz.

3 Ade­laide’s BAI LONG (above right)is a pan-Asian restau­rant, re­tail store and mod­ernist tem­ple dra­mat­i­cally ren­dered in black and white. Chef Jae Hyun-Park (ex Nobu, Mel­bourne) looks to Korean, Ja­panese, Tai­wanese and Chi­nese in­flu­ences for the day (con­gee with soy egg) and night of­fer­ing (oc­to­pus with yuzu pa­paya). Goods to go in­clude teas and dry noo­dles. In the evening, there’s an ad­di­tional veg­e­tar­ian menu.
