Cutler & Co – Melbourne

Located in the old metal works in Fitzroy, Cutler & Co strikes a very fine balance between elegance and simplicity. Celebrating seasonal produce comes from an a la carte menu featuring larger dishes to share for the table and the daily changing Chef’s Selection degustation style menu.

Cutler & Co is open for dinner from 6pm on the day, and with the wonderfully prepared menu matched to an award-winning wine list, you can celebrate the day in style with this wonderful food experience.

Zia Teresa Restaurant – Melbourne

Since opening their doors in 1985, Zia Teresa has become a Brunswick institution.

The restaurant oozes with passion and pride for the food that they serve, and this is evident in the wonderfully prepared menu that celebrates all the regions of Italy and Teresa Burno’s lifetime achievement award for excellence.
