St Kilda is one of the coolest and most fashionable districts of Melbourne, and Fitzroy Street is even cool by their standards. At the trendy end of the street – right by the water and the meeting point with The Esplanade and Acland Street – you can find Miss Fitzy’s, home to great music, high-quality drinks and a killer menu. The food on offer is quintessentially Australian, though it takes influences from Europe and beyond, and the wines are similarly international – Tasmania, France, Italy and New Zealand are all represented – so take a trip to St Kilda to taste the whole world in Melbourne.
Melbourne is a city of great dining districts, whether that be the Italian enclave of Lygon Street in Carlton, the Little Saigon along Victoria Street in Abbotsford, the Chinatown on Bourke Street in the CBD or the Greek Precinct on Lonsdale Street. St Kilda doesn’t miss out, and if you’re wanting to pick up a great meal in the area, then Fitzroy Street is where you need to go. Down at the end closest to the ocean lies Miss Fitzy’s, an Australian restaurant with a fashionable address and an even more stylish menu to enjoy.
The bar is worth a visit in and of itself – try the cocktails or one of the many Australian wines on offer – but the star of the show is the food, so let us talk you through the menu. There are Spanish, French and Italian influences brought to bear in the kitchen, and if you choose judiciously, you can taste all three. Start with some baby calamari with sea salt and chilli, before moving on to a hearty pappardelle puttanesca with goats’ curd and roasted garlic. Finish your meal at Miss Fitzy’s on Fitzroy Street with a creme brulee and you’re well on the way to a great night out in St Kilda – just remember to book a table before you arrive, as they do get busy.
