The Best Restaurants on Brunswick Street
As the main artery of Melbourne’s oldest suburb, Brunswick Street has undergone countless transformations. Each generation of locals and business owners has left its mark on the two-kilometre strip, creating a layer cake of cuisines, cultures, people and identities. And through gentrification, rent hikes and the pandemic, many of its institutions have stayed open. Marios speaks to the area’s Italian history, while 40-year-old Afghan Gallery pays homage to Melbourne’s Afghan community. Today, no matter where you get off the number 11 tram, you won’t be far from great vegetarian, Japanese or Indian spots. Here are the best places to eat on the iconic strip, curated by Broadsheet’s expert food and drink editors.
