Melbourne, Australia

Terrazzo and marble tabletops frame pitch-perfect modern bistro-style plates at this low-key bar à vins. It’s the sort of place everyone wants in their ‘hood – not trying to hard, open to all, superlative wine list and inventive-yet-accessible food you’ll remember for days to come. With a wood-fired grill central to the kitchen, Melbourne chef Rosheen Kaul dishes up serious flavour across plates that undulate from dainty bar snacks – see: flash-fired abalone and lard skewers with smoked soy ¬ to sharing plates – tender lamb ribs in black vinegar and lime, tempura enoki with almond tarator perhaps – and mains. A crispy rice salad of red curried saUSge and mussels is particularly stand out, though vegetable dishes like wood-fired cabbage flower with roasted sesame and hot oil dressing shouldn’t be overlooked. It's a menu littered with global influence – both personal and professional – that sits seamlessly within the Melbourne tableaux.
