6 Restaurants to Visit in Melbourne for the 2022 National AA Convention

The National AA Convention of 2022 is fast approaching. This year, it's the city of Melbourne that's playing host to an inspiring weekend filled with sharing, stories, and strength. It's set to be an amazing event for all involved—with a beautiful backdrop to boot.

Melbourne is an amazing city filled with stunning sights and wonderful culture. If you're coming in from out of town and you'd like to get to know the city a little bit, let this article be your guide. Read on for a rundown of all of the most delectable restaurants in Melbourne you won't want to miss.

1. Supernormal

Supernormal is a super hip Asian fusion spot where you can enjoy either dinner or a long leisurely lunch. The atmosphere here is laid back and the food is perfect for sharing, so you can definitely go with a group. Best of all, it's only 15 minutes from the Conference site by public transport!

2. Lona Misa

If you're vegetarian (or even if you're not) then Lona Misa is a must-visit restaurant. This is vegan and vegetarian dining at its finest, and the decor is almost as swoon-worthy as the food. It's about 20 minutes by public transport from the Convention or, if you're feeling up to it, a pleasant half-hour stroll.

3. Attica

If you're looking for something a little on the fancier side to celebrate the successes of the weekend and your journey so far, then you won't come across a better option than Attica. One of the top Melbourne restaurants of the moment.

This atmospheric fine-dining restaurant offers tasting menus that are to die for. One unique feature of this establishment is that it offers suggestions for non-alcoholic drink pairings (as well as alcoholic ones) to facilitate sober dining.

4. Rustica

For breakfast, there are countless amazing places to choose from in Melbourne, however, Rustica just might take the top spot. This is a breakfast spot cum bakery that has several locations around the city. Here you'll find all the breakfast classics and—if you're lucky—some seriously delicious freshly baked goods.

5. +39 Pizza

You can't go wrong with pizza. There's currently a heated debate ongoing over who holds the title for the best pizza in Melbourne, and it's a tough question to answer. What isn't tough, however, is the fluffy yet crispy dough you'll find on the pizzas at the no-frills Italian restaurant +39 Pizza.

6. Shujinko

Looking for quick, hearty, and affordable food? Then Shujinko on Russel Street should be your first port of call. Shujinko is a casual spot that serves up huge bowls of ramen (and other Asian delights) at a price that won't break the bank.
