Fresh European-inspired cuisine, fine wine, and a beautiful setting make Neighbourhood Wine a favourite among Melbourne gourmands and wine lovers. Situated on Fitzroy’s Reid Street, close to Nicholson Street, this foodie paradise is renowned for its usage of seasonal produce and fresh ingredients in all of its menu offerings. With a constantly changing menu, Neighbourhood Wine keeps regulars on their toes with a seemingly limitless number of dinner possibilities.
The atmosphere at the NWB is cool but not pretentious, the crowd being a mix of local/not and young/more experienced. The staff are welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. The food menu, which is a bit French, is short but always good and the house made bread is very yummy. The wine list is extensive, covering most of the globe and staff are knowledgeable in navigating around it, we had a lovely Chardonnay as it was a warm night.
