MoVida Aqui

The downtown outlet of Melbourne tapas institution MoVida is brighter and more open than its uptown parent, sporting big windows and a patio for alfresco lunching. They do all the things MoVida is good at – seafood, cured meats and plenty of good Spanish wine, beer and sherry.

The big leafy courtyard at Trunk is a welcome bit of green space for lunching in the concrete jungle. With a menu ranging from casual American-style fare from the Diner to pastas and steaks, you’re covered from a full meal to a quick bite.

Grossi Florentino: The Cellar Bar

The Cellar Bar at Grossi Florentino

Outside Cellar Bar, little round tables, umbrellas and wicker chairs make the best place in the city for eating in the thick of Bourke St. The cheap, hearty and simple Italian fair and friendly old-school service is everything good about Melbourne hospitality.
