NOT: Seamstress, 113 Lonsdale St, Melbourne

Seamstress describes itself as ‘a contemporary, mid-price Cantonese eatery boasting two premier cocktail bars.’ I can’t vouch for the two cocktail bars (but the top bar was beautifully decorated with a rack of chinoiserie clothing running along the ceiling over the bar), but I can assure you that the restaurant was a NOT. Firstly, it […]

HOT: The Emerald Peacock, 233 Lonsdale St, Melbourne

Leave the city for two years and dingy Lonsdale Street seems to have been refurbed into the street where people go out to the hip new places.

Ask the Doctor: Restaurant for 16th birthday party

We’re talking a hunk of toast topped with a cushion of rubbery scrambled eggs, wheels of grilled tomato, onion and potato and a toppling […]

Scanlan & Theodore is a clothing brand which I regularly covet but have never purchased, as frankly I think the clothes are inordinately expensive for what you get. Enter the Scanlan & Theodore Clearance Store in the revamped fashion hub of Melbourne Central. As you’d expect, the fit out is the bare minimum, with signage […]
