The Only National Restaurant Critic with John Lethlean

  • “John Lethlean is Australia’s only national restaurant critic. A journalist by trade, John has written full-time about restaurants, food and the people involved with this exciting landscape since 1996, at publications including The Age, Delicious and Gourmet Traveller.” – The Australian
  • On a bad day, John may be received with some unfortunate names – and we discuss that – but he says what he believes, as an objective voice in the media. Now the courage to do that in an environment riddled with paid ads and cunning advertorials demonstrates his character – above his experience as a journalist.
  • I hope you enjoy the conversation we have traversing hospitality, media, technology and more.
