**Mayfair is due to open in August 2017.
“Where can you go to get caviar and oysters at 3am?” is the question Joe Jones (Romeo Lane) and David Mackintosh (Pei Modern) asked themselves before beginning plans for their soon-to-open bistro, The Mayfair, in the old Pei Modern space on Collins Street.
The pair has been working with Mills Gorman Architects and designer Louisa Roth on the interiors. But much of the design has come from Jones and Mackintosh shooting ideas back and forth.
While the hunt for a chef is still on, they’ll be bringing Elle Fredrick (previously of Sydney fine diner Bentley) on board as general manager
