HOT: Victoria Hotel, 43 Victoria Street, Footscray

The Victoria Hotel Footscray has reopened after a transformation from the down-at-heel Harts Hotel thanks to new owners Anthony Hammond (co-owner of the excellent Builders Arms in Fitzroy) with business partner Nick Carter plus Anthony’s wife Jo deFina.

HOT: Meat the Greek, 105A Victoria St, Seddon

Greek food doesn’t get much a look in Melbourne’s west despite the area’s long Greek heritage.  So it’s with some excitement that we try Meat the Greek souvlaki bar in Seddon.

HOT: Second Home, 21 Brougham St, Eltham

Second Home in Eltham is an award-winning cafe housed in an Alistair Knox-designed brick industrial building. It’s the latest venture from cafe maestro Jason Jones (The Stables of Como, Friends of Mine, Go West) and well worth a special trip to the leafy ‘burbs. Formerly a factory, workshop and gallery, Second Home has taken the […]
