“Iconic St Kilda restaurant; it's an institution. Lovely staff and very good Italian home-style food. On the expensive side, but worth the money. No bookings, so arrive around 6ish if you want to get a table during busy holiday periods. ”

Mexicaans restaurant

“Bayside bar and taqueria Radio Mexico will satisfy any cravings you have for tequila, tacos and hot sauce with a simple, well-priced menu. The menu boasts hanger steak or salt-bush lamb tacos, rockling ceviche, and goals milk caramel with toasted coconut ice-cream for dessert. I suggest you order the chilaquiles - deep-fried tortilla chips with sour cream, avocado and salsa.”

Cafe

“Fitzrovia takes its name from a historically bohemian neighbourhood in central London and also happens to be the Italian expression for Fitzroy Street. Owners Paul Jewson (a Melbourne-born chef) and Marco Pugnaloni (an Italian) spent two decades in the English capital. Jewson often found himself cooking with imported ingredients there, even while working at top-tier venues such as Soho House and River Cafe. At Fitzrovia, boxes of fruit and vegetables line the stairs and herbs peep out from the light fittings, trumpeting an opposing philosophy. Back-of-house, chefs draw on prime Victorian produce such as Jonesy’s non-homogenised milk, Milawa free-range chicken and South Gippsland lamb. That local thinking extends to the drinks, where 2 Brothers and Mornington Peninsula Brewery ales are listed beside wines from the Adelaide Hills and Yarra Valley. The exception to the rule are the wines from Italy – in deference to Pugnaloni’s heritage. On balmy nights they’re best enjoyed on the tiled porch, watching St Kilda’s colourful characters stroll by. Breakfast strikes the balance between fancy and comforting. The Toasted Door Stop Sandwich is jammed with Istra bacon, smoked mozzarella and pear relish. Crème brûlée French toast comes with banana, whipped mascarpone and toasted pecans. Lunch and dinner say more of Jewson's prior experience, featuring classic European proteins such as chicken saltimbocca or duck leg paired with rich sauces. But alongside the French and Italian techniques and flavours, there are welcome hints of Asia and the Middle East. Don’t leave without trying the umami-rich polenta chips with truffle oil and parmesan.”

Vietnamese Restaurant
$$
“Called Uncle, a term of endearment and respect in Vietnam, the restaurant aims to be genuinely Vietnamese, if not meticulously so. That means pate with crackers, steak with chilli and coconut butter - Vietnamese flavours mixed with Chinese and French influences too. Perched above Blackhearts and Sparrows, the venue was designed by Adele Winteridge of Foolscap Studio, the aesthetic brains behind Patricia. Design has clearly played an important part in Uncle’s conception, with furniture by Northcote’s Steve Edwards and handmade Crockery by Fork Ceramics (Ruth Laird Spence, Spence’s wife), complementing Foolscap’s fit-out. With a working bar downstairs and al fresco dining above, Uncle is an enjoyable but affordable dining experience. Co-owner Rene Spence puts it this way: “The idea was for you to look at your bill at the end and say ‘Whoah, shit! Are you kidding me? Is it that cheap?’"”

Latijns-Amerikaans restaurant
$$
“With a nod to the St Kilda of old (a little grunge, a little cool), Newmarket Hotel combines these elements with its own urban style from the group behind the Middle Park Hotel, the Albert Park Hotel and the Royal Saxon in Richmond. Group director Julian Gerner has again employed the rich skills of consultant chef Paul Wilson and Mark Healy from 6 Degrees architects. Here you will find a striking space of indoor and outdoor dining areas and a chef’s table for up to 16 people, which cleverly uses light and space with a modern retro feel. The menu focuses on Californian flavours that are conducive to a warm Australian climate. Think soft-shell crab tacos, cured hams and rare breed roasts from the wood-fired oven. No wine or beer is served in bottles, with four reds, four whites, a sparkling and a rose all available by the carafe along with 17 beer taps serving some interesting brews. The consistency of this group and their collaborative nous and style means St Kilda has a new/old watering hole.”
