• So, this bodes well: the World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards is coming to Melbourne's Royal Exhibition Building.

Stokehouse reopens this weekend – well, part of it, at least.

• After a small fire (and luckily, a sale), Rosa’s Kitchen has closed.

• There’s a beautifully designed new cafe on High Street, with Reubens and Clement coffee.

• The French Saloon extends its opening hours ’til 1.30am – so you know where to get a high-end cheeseburger after midnight.

• Everyone knows Finnegan’s Wake can only be read with a bottle of whiskey on hand. This new bar and bookshop will leave you well versed in both whiskey and Irish literature.

• Americans think Australians live on a diet of fairy bread. Maybe they’re onto something?
