Seafood shines at this South Yarra stalwart, owned by chef Michael Bacash. Here, in a slender, art-lined dining room overlooking parkland, a seasoned service team works a loyal crowd, suggesting spot-on wine matches to complement the globe-trotting cuisine. Finely honed starters might include sesame-crusted yellowfin with a nori crisp and a mild wasabi dressing, or Indian-accented scallops with earthy cauliflower puree and onion bhajis. Mains are similarly intrepid and well crafted, spanning French-inflected roast ocean trout on a buttery jumble of peas, lettuce and bacon, and Lebanese-leaning snapper with caramelised onion, tahini and sumac-braised silverbeet. A smattering of likeable meat and vegetarian options ensure this fish-focused menu caters to all comers. Linger a little longer while your souffle rises - whether passionfruit, chestnut or blood orange, you'll see why it's become a Bacash signature.
