Molecular Gastronomy Restaurant
$$$$
“One of the best restaurants in Australia, if not THE BEST one. The crown jewel of Melbourne fine dining. Set menu only. Getting a table at Attica is extremely difficult; you need to book at 9am on the dot on booking release date (the first Wednesday 3 months before intended booking). This is because at 9:05 all tables will be gone. If you are unable to get a table at Attica, you can try Vue de Monde in the CBD; this is a much bigger restaurant so it is likely to have seats available last minute. Personally I prefer Attica over Vue De Monde.”

Deli / Bodega
$$
“Part Jewish deli & take home salads/ foods for a quick meal. Their salads are a great healthy option. This is a good place to get a taste of Jewish options, in a nice seating. It can be a bit on the pricey side compared to other brunch options and there's limited seating, where you can have brunch. But is a creative menu & as they are open late, you can grab a quick healthy meal. Open Mon–Fri 7am–6pm, Sat–Sun 7am–4pm. There's raw vegan muesli, carrot-and-dill latke (potato fritters) with cured salmon and poached egg, and the brekkie "ruben" – lightly toasted bagel loaded with thick cuts of pastrami that's made on-site using Cape Grim beef, plus a fried egg and cos lettuce. Sandwiches, from $12 to $16, include smoked-whitefish salad, red onion, tomato and rocket on rye, and a 200-gram pastrami on rye, with red kraut and a pickle – also made on-site. Choose two ($14.50) or three ($21.50) salads from the great glass counter, such as tri-colour beetroot with sauteed leaves and candied walnuts, tabbouleh, or roasted cauliflower with pine nuts, chilli and date molasses yoghurt. In the fridges at the front of the shop are take-home bits and pieces, such as cured salmon, that pastrami, chicken soup, matzo balls, dips, and lasagne. Whole roast chooks and lamb shoulders ($40 each) are also available to take home. They also sell artisan bread. ”
