If you thought that Chapel Street would be hibernating this Winter, you thought wrong. So VERY wrong. Not only is it zooming along at it’s typical freight train speed, but a handful of new joints have entered the ranks too!
Here’s five of our faves – from sleek new restaurants, to a brand spankin’ new retailer about to make waves. Check em’ out!
Stage 3 of the epic Wilson & Market trilogy, the Brasserie is now here. What started off as a hole in the wall Tuck Shop, is now a fully fledged, morning to night, foodie destination. Let’s just say that a new Mecca has moved into the Prahran Market!
Chef Paul Wilson, the brains & brawn behind Wilson & Market is championing fresh, local produce, seasonality and cooking using natural methods. Think wood, smoke and fire. Chef Wilson says that he’s not trying to be trendy, it simply makes the food taste better. You know what, we agree!
If the Kardashians are the extent of your Armenian knowledge, you need to turn off your TV and head on down to Shukah – a Windsor newcomer putting Armenian food front and centre.
Not sure what to expect? Tasty, middle eastern flavours with distinctive Armenian flare. Food to share, or savour all to yourself, and a casual atmosphere that fits right into Windsor’s easy going scene.
Blink and you’ll miss this brand new pop-up to permanent on Izett Street, off Greville. While locals are starting to take notice, if you don’t frequent these cottage lined streets in Prahran, you’ll be missing out on Minomero.
Minomero is simple, with a small, but extremely tailored range of mens & womens clothing. The focus is on well made and designed items from luxe international brands. Each and every piece is quality and no detail has been overlooked. If your gym gains have made shirt shopping a bit of a challenge, try the Oscar of Sweden dress shirts. Made for Swedes with Ragnar Lothbrok in their genes, we think that you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the fit!
Resto Bobo is a casual french eatery in Windsor that is making some noise! Forget fussy or fancy, this sweet little spot is all about tarte flambée. That’s french pizza, if you didn’t know. It’s just as delicious as its Italian cousin, and with the ridiculous range of french wine to pair with your hand held French delight, you may love it even more!
Brand new to Prahran, #burgerlove are the latest burger challenger vying for our burger loving patronage. Fun, quirky and obviously a little social media obsessed, #burgerlove might just give a few burger joints a run for their cheddar! While the menu is packed burgs that sound down right delicious, we’re not too sure about the #DEATH BY CHOCOLATE. Beef patty, American cheddar, bacon, Heartstarter. XXX BBQ sauce and NUTELLA. Cray.
Did someone say FREE BEER?! Set in Windsor’s hidden oasis (AKA Sample Bar’s beer garden), you’re invited to an afternoon of simple pleasures with Hawkers Beer.
Boy George Australian DJ Tour at Chasers Nightclub. Culture Club frontman & POP icon Boy George is one of the most recognised and in demand House Music DJ’s of all time.
Ahh Valentine’s Day, a stupid cliche, a money making con or an opportunity to show your numero uno how much you really appreciate them. There’s so much to do on Chapel Street this day of love, even the hard-hearted will soften.
