             A couple of weeks into its life and Chris Lucas’ new venture is hot, hot, hot. Chin Chin  is situated in Flinders Lane in the space formerly occupied by the abjectly terrible ICON bar. It is actually incredible that ICON was hiding such an amazing space – I really love the high, pressed metal ceiling and […]

Late last year (bad blogger!) Mr M and I took a long weekend to Hobart. Poor weather meant that our planned Tassie activity of bushwalking had to be shelved. As a result, we found ourselves with 4 days in Hobart to eat, eat and eat. Heading to a new city, I naturally sought counsel from […]

  While we were in Noosa, we wanted to try something different from our standard fare of Bistro C lunches and a special meal at Spirit House or Wasabi. Embassy XO was suggested as somewhere new to try. Embassy XO is part of the new XO Group at Sunshine Beach, which comprises the XO Bistro Wine […]

     I really like the Commoner. Mr M and I first visited midway through last year (pre-blog!), when I was in the throes of wedding planning. After having my hair and make-up trial for the big day, I decided we should at least go out somewhere, so that the effort was not wasted (although formal hair […]

We recently organised a girls night out to make J’s return to Melbourne after 10 weeks in South America a little more bearable. The brief was somewhere located in the city with good food and great cocktails. Gingerboy was an obvious choice. I’ve been to Gingerboy a couple of times previously, although I haven’t been for about […]

Mr M and I were lucky enough to be taken to Coda by S & C as a belated wedding present (thanks!). Coda is the new(ish) pursuit of Adam D’Sylva (ex Pearl and The Age Young Chef of the Year 2008) together with Mykal Bartholomew (ex MoVida) and Kate Calder (ex Taxi). Coda serves Asian and French […]

On a cracking mid-week evening I crossed-town for dinner at Ichi Ni with my mother and friends R and A, to celebrate A’s recent engagement. I rarely make it over to St Kilda but it really was a magic night, with that crazily blue sky, the sun setting and people everywhere sitting outdoors enjoying a […]

The word on the street is that molecular gastronomy is over. That’s right, young-annoying-one-from-Masterchef-whose-name-escapes-me, it’s O.V.E.R.
