Stay up to date with Melbourne's best restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops.

Riso

Restaurant

This all-day diner and wine bar is from an ex-Vue De Monde chef known for his sell out vegetarian pop-up dinners. Come for an a la carte menu that changes daily (pastas are the star of the show) and a wine list curated by an ex-L'Hôtel Gitan and Movida sommelier.

Bar Romanee

Restaurant

This swish bar – decked out in emerald marble and plush velvet – was once a Bakers Delight. Now, it's a buzzy bistro and wine bar from a former Fitzroy Town Hall head chef and the owner of nearby wine bar Barkley Johnson. Visit for a caramelised-onion baguette, whole fish swimming in miso butter and a peachy aperitif cocktail.

Tres a Cinco

Restaurant

The Movida team's lively cantina, in the former Bar Tini site, brings home-style Mexican to Hosier Lane. Led by Mexican chef Sarai Castillo, expect beef tacos exactly how they're served in Mexico, prawn-and-chorizo tamales and a jiggly chocolate flan. Plus eight different Margaritas and hard-to-find agave spirits.
