CHARLIE CARRINGTON, ATLAS
Let’s hope there’s an ageing portrait in Charlie Carrington’s attic because otherwise this preternaturally gifted 23 year old would make anyone on the wrong side of 30 despair. 133 Commercial Rd, South Yarra 3141. 03 9826 2621. atlasdining.com.au.
GUY GROSSI, GROSSI FLORENTINO
In heady dining times, Guy Grossi keeps the august Florentino at the top of its game while somehow finding the time to open Arlechin, the coolest of cool Melbourne boltholes. 80 Bourke St, Melbourne 3000. 03 9662 1811. grossiflorentino.com.au.
ANDREW MCCONNELL, CUTLER & CO
How do we love thee? Let us count the ways… Ricky & Pinky, Supernormal Canteen and the Cutler & Co reboot this year kept the A-mac on top of the Melbourne dining pops. 55-57 Gertrude St, Fitzroy 3065. 03 9419 4888. cutlerandco.com.au.

What’s a nice Turkish boy doing in a kitchen like this? At his smart Balaclava restaurant, Coskun Uysal is showing the diaspora how to turn cultural clichés into modern edible loveliness. 217 Carlisle St, Balaclava 3183. 03 9525 9127. tulumrestaurant.com.au.
