Etta

Don’t let the polished concrete and bentwood chairs fool you into thinking this is just another neighborhood wine bar. Etta is one of the most exciting places to eat in Melbourne right now, largely thanks to a bold, punchy menu that draws on the chef’s Kashmiri, Chinese, Singaporean, and Filipino heritage. Read: scallops cooked in sambal-spiked butter, abalone-lardo skewers swept with soy and kampot pepper, and crayfish with curry-leaf butter. All primed for pairing with interesting wines from small-batch producers.

Bar Liberty

Bar Liberty's drinks list is loaded with interesting natural wines, but there’s also sake, pastis, vermouth, and killer snacks.
