Almost a week old now! It looks beautiful, and I’m glad Melbourne is giving us a few more warm days so that we can appreciate the sunset through our first-floor windows!
Small things have been tweaked, and we feel more and more comfortable with where we’re at in our venue. Thanks to everyone who came to our soft opening and putting us through our paces!
The wine list has grown, and apart from interesting specimens from well-known regions, we have also acquired Chinese and Japanese samples. The food is still simple with retro quirks, which works well in the venue.
On the stress scale that week reached a solid 10. However all weeks have to end with a Monday (thank heavens) and yesterday I checked out Shandong MaMa off Bourke Street, to see whether all the deliriously gushing blogger reports about the dumplings were justified. (Unlike with HuTong Dumpling where it’s all just hype). And it is, absolutely, very good. Oh and the gelati at The European’s Spring Street Grocer Gelateria Primavera is seriously proper too, although I think I’m the last to find that out!
