The latest in food from Melbourne, June 9, 2022


• These are the 22 best new restaurants in Melbourne. Consider this guide your hit list for winter.

• One of Melbourne’s finest Spanish restaurants made an appearance at the NGV alongside the blockbuster Picasso exhibition. Expect golden jamon croquetas, blood orange crème caramel and Spanish-inspired Negronis.

• Coming soon: Brewdog, one of the world’s largest craft breweries, will open its doors in Melbourne’s historic Pentridge Jail in Cobourg this spring.

• Congress Canteen: We Are Kerala founder and former Rochester Hotel chef Mischa Tropp is taking over Collingwood Restaurant with his Kerala cooking brand – tomorrow.

• A new initiative is helping Victorians get creative with their food waste. Think fruit leather, homemade curry powder and chocolate chip cookies made with almond pulp.

• In a small industrial street, Fieldwork is a new micro-bakery and neighborhood café. It’s the renaming of established coffee roasting offices – just across from Moon Dog OG in Abbotsford.

• It’s International Sushi Day on June 18th. And, for just one day, Black Star Pastry bakes intricate sushi-inspired cakes to celebrate.

• First Look: Flatbread is the hero, not the sidekick, of Northcote’s fiery new Spitjack restaurant. Moist, charry and hand-rolled, it’s packed with your choice of flame-licked meats or vegetables.

• The incredible Japanese café Ima Project has temporarily transformed into an intimate late-night izakaya. Visit after dark for gravy crab cakes and spicy salted cod roe pasta – the ultimate Japanese-Italian mashup – paired with sake.

• Brunch is back at a classic Andrew McConnell restaurant – and you can book. Expect a twice baked cheese soufflé, crumpets with whipped ricotta and a full English style – McConnell. It is one of the best morning meals in the CBD.

• Lune opens in Armadale this winter, bringing its creme de la creme croissants to the south. All the details.

• Speaking of Moon, for a limited time only, he’s making delicious snail lasagna. This might be the best lasagna (or Moon-sagne) you’ve ever eaten with your hands.

• This weekend: Kelso’s Sandwich Shoppe has teamed up with Bagels Baby to turn two crowd favorites – tuna fudge and chicken sanga – into bagels.

• On the former site of the Press Club, the new Indian restaurant Elchi oscillates between classic and contemporary with extravagant dishes such as fragrant chicken mussallam covered in 24 carat gold leaf.
