With its heart in Melbourne’s eclectic laneways and its roots in modern Australian cuisine, this sophisticated yet relaxed spot is the perfect place to escape the bustle of the CBD and have some much needed ‘you’ time.
Located in the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, near Flinders Street’s platform 270, it has a modern, cosmopolitan vibe which is matched by professional yet understated service. Expect cosy leather booths and exposed wine cabinets, as well as an open kitchen which lights up like a stage during dinner service.
The menu changes with the seasons, so it’s always worth checking with staff for the latest recommendations. Expect comfort classics reimagined in innovative ways for a sophisticated urban audience, small bites, succulent steaks sourced from 36° South in South Australia and decadent pasta dishes.
Crowd pleasers include chargrilled squid and nectarine salad and rich duck ragu pasta, topped with ricotta salsa. Don’t miss the beef burger with deliciously sour homemade pickles…
Add in quality drinks and an upscale ambience and you’ll see why this one is difficult to beat!
