We had heard very good things about chef Nicolas Poelaert’s food and he has an impressive background, including working at Michelin starred Bras Restaurant in Laguiole, France. Embrasse is located in Drummond Street, Carlton in a space that was previously occupied by three, […]

Mr M and I recently visited Next Door Diner for a Friday night date. Next Door Diner has been on my to visit list for ages. It has a great pedigree in that it is owned and run by the team behind the Breakfast Club (which I loved), and which is located next door (get it?). […]
