So, what’s the deal with all this city talk then?
So we’re all familiar with the trendy spots – from St Kilda to Fitzroy, with Northcote, Brunswick, Carlton and Prahran attracting the hipster foodie crowds. But what about the heart of it all? Essentially, the home of the best restaurants in Melbourne’s CBD are found within the two oldest areas of the city: the Hoddle Grid and the Queen Victoria Market, as well as the redeveloped areas of Docklands and Southbank. For those who don’t know, the Hoddle Grid is home to Melbourne’s famous laneways and arcades, and is renowned for its blend of contemporary and Victorian architecture, as well as the expansive gardens and parks surrounding it, and the eclectic street art adorning the buildings. It’s also home to the best restaurants in the Melbourne CBD, with some ranked among the best in the world. From Spencer Street, along La Trobe, William and Peel Streets, running through the Yarra and down to Flinders Street and St Kilda Road, you’ll find incredible restaurants within Melbourne’s CBD. It’s truly an exciting world of dining!
