editor’s letter

I have the cold sweat of dread tickling my neck as I write this, wary of tempting fate to prove me wrong, once again. But all going to plan (remember those?) by the time you read this, Sydney’s restaurants will once again be open for business, with Melbourne just moments away from joining them. Like everyone, I’ve been dreaming about where to go first (…and second… and third). In fact, I have booked about 10 meals out in the next fortnight, and I intend to relish every one of them. Several will be at establishments featured in this issue, as we present the 2022 Restaurant Awards and Guide. In addition to our individual award winners, we have also rounded up the Top 80 restaurants across Australia. And of course, we celebrate…

JESSICA WYLD photographer Hopes and dreamers, p114 Margaret River-born photographer Jessica Wyld is compelled to capture vibrant perspectives that make the everyday beautiful, both in her home state and beyond. In this issue, Wyld visits Esperance, a coastal town she used to visit on childhood getaways. “Esperance has truly grown up but is still effortlessly relaxed and breathtakingly stunning,” she says. “The community spirit there is contagious.

Abrolhos Islands, Western Australia Yes, the water really is that blue. And no, that shoreline hasn’t been photoshopped. East Wallabi Island, part of the spectacular Abrolhos Islands, was the perfect backdrop for the inaugural Abrolhos Long Table, an all-day beach party with Vasse Felix chef Brendan Pratt tending the (local seafood) barbie. Start planning now for the return of Shore Leave Festival in May. Max Veenhuyzen, WA state editor Frank’s Deli, Sydney Waverley now beholds this deli cornucopia, where condiments reign supreme and the sandwiches are dressed and pressed to the nines. Opt for the scrambled egg and LP’s brisket breakfast sandwich; or the hearty Reuben. 279 Bronte Rd, Waverley, NSW.
