Meet up with mates in Melbourne at Essendon's restaurants
Melbourne's Essendon are also ideal for social dining. If you're a Bombers fan and want to enjoy some great food before heading up to the ground, or you want to catch up with your friends over a relaxed lunch, there's no shortage of options. Head to JiJi's and tuck into Mediterranean cuisine and delectable home-baked cakes, or Rubicon gastropub where you can blend evening entertainment with everything from BBQ ribs to Moroccan tagines. And there's no shortage of brekkie venues either, so if you want to start the day properly, you know where to head.
