Or­der the Cloudy Bay Clams Casino – a sta­ple straight from New Eng­land, USA. 125 En­more Rd, Syd­ney En­tre­pre­neur Jess Ho wanted to show­case small pro­duc­ers of wine and spir­its from all over the world – and has done ex­actly that in this cute vino bar. The dy­namic list will change as dif­fer­ent drops be­come avail­able, but cock­tails will be kept to the clas­sics. As for food, the menu’s small too – eight to 10 items that prove of­fal is tasty and veg­eta­bles can be the hero on a plate. 20-22 Yarra Place, Mel­bourne With the tagline ‘eat like you give a f@ck’, this sweary bi­ble cham­pi­ons cleaner, health­ier food.
