Clover is a charming 50-seat wine bar serving excellent wines and French-leaning fare. The light and airy wine bar is from two Melbourne hospitality veterans, chef Charley Snadden-Wilson (Etta, Embla, Ramblr) and wine guy Lyndon Kubis (The Hills, The Alps, Toorak Cellars, Milton Wine Shop and The Moon).
At Clover, which is set in a former light-fitting store next to Future Future, the duo focus on natural pours and simple but superbly executed European-inspired small plates.
Alongside young and experimental drops, you’ll find old-world wines and back-vintage bottles that were embracing lo-fi techniques long before they were cool. The wine list spans Australia, France, Italy and Germany.
The French-leaning menu, on the other hand, is a bit more focused. It's all cooked over a Brick Chef live-fire oven and grill that's built into the open kitchen. On the menu, you might find slow-smoked tomatoes served with white asparagus, anchovy and smoky garlic aioli; or gently steamed leeks cooked en papillote and dressed with fresh sage and macadamia cream.
