Best restaurants in Lygon Street
Replacing the Roving Marrow on the corner of Lygon and Elgin Streets is the Green Man’s Arms, an Israeli-influenced and 100 per cent vegan and vegetarian pub. Falafel is on the menu (made to a secret Jerusalem recipe rumour has it), as is fluffy, crumpet-like lahuh bread which comes served with either falafel, fried eggplant, or green beans and mushrooms. For those looking for a proper pub meal, there's the roasted veggie couscous (so good they named it twice) or grilled vegetable salad complete with beets, almonds, pita bread and silky labne. Being a pub, beer is naturally centre stage. The Green Man’s Arms owns all its taps and pours local craft brews like Hawkers Pilsner, Stomping Ground Saison and Holgate Mt Macedon Pale Ale.
