The Carlton Rifle Brigade Hotel-cum-Hotel Astor has been a fixture of Lygon Street for 150 years, but never has it served such exceptional food as it does right now. The Roving Marrow is the Astor’s restaurant, a Good Food Guide hatted eatery offering one of Melbourne’s most unique dining experiences. The Roving Marrow is perhaps best-known for their Sunday yum cha, a European take on the Asian dining institution that sees delicious contemporary dishes wheeled around in a refined, relaxed manner allowing you to get an idea of the breadth and depth of skill in the kitchen here. The menu is strongly attached to quality, seasonal Australian products and so it changes regularly and you’re never quite sure of what will be on offer, though each and every time you visit you can be assured of an unforgettable meal employing international influences across space and time. Those are lofty words, we know, but eat at The Roving Marrow and you’ll see that, if anything, we’re understating it.
