One thing's for sure at this new bistro-bar by Melbourne chef John-Paul Fiechtner โ€” you won't know what you're eating till you get there, but chances are it'll be creative and tasty. The menu changes daily, depending on what catches his fancy at the local market. The Burpple community has been raving about the Corn, Prawn Head Butter & Croissant ($16), which sees grilled baby corn drizzled with the most umami-tasting prawn head butter, served with an amazingly flaky croissant to mop it up with. We also loved the Liver, White Peach, Cherries, Flowers ($22) โ€” especially how the slight crunch of the peach and the tang of the cherries complemented the silky smooth liver. On top of this, the wines are great and the service is warm and friendly. We can't think of a better way to spend a night out with fellow food lovers!
Avg Price: $80 per person

Satiating on all levels.
Our plate was wiped clean within minutes, easily my favourite course of the night, and this gets my vote to remain on their menu, hopefully, for many more months to come ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป Barely a month into their opening and already, @thirteenduxtonhill is impressing with bold flavours, welcoming ambience and out-the-roof fantastic service (thanks Sally @humblesommelier!). Will definitely be back to witness more adventurous offerings from Chef @chefjpf.


"Feed us, Chef", we said. And he did.
He started really strong with this superbly flaky croissant served with grilled baby corn in prawn head butter. The latter dazzled with stunning umami-ness, while the fresh, crisp young corn brought bursts of brightness. It would've been positively criminal if we didn't mop up every bit of that amazing butter with the flaky croissant too.
