HOT: Auction Rooms, 103-107 Errol St, North Melbourne

Auction Rooms is a casual cafe/restaurant set inside the old WB Ellis auction house in North Melbourne. In fact, the long wooden floorboards, exposed beams, distressed brickwork and high ceilings hoisting a series of whirring fans reminded me a lot of the interior of an airy Queenslander home. It seems like the kind of place […]

HOT: Proud Mary, Cnr Stanley and Oxford Sts, Collingwood

Lena: Do you really not drink coffee????? Jetsetting Joyce: Um, that’s right. I’m not a true Melburnian. Can you and James please come to Proud Mary with me?

HOT: Anada, 197 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

If you have a Monday birthday there aren’t too many options for a birthday meal, so I was delighted when Tranzie suggested that they treat me to dinner at the Spanish restaurant Anada, one of those funky Gertrude Street places that I just never got around to trying before. The chef has previously worked at […]
