Court ap­peal

Wallpaper - - Travel -

Kate Dick­ins and Bryan Nel­son have re­cently moved this much-loved Port Mel­bourne restau­rant into a larger space down the road in a for­mer court­house, which has been trans­formed into a warm yet lofty space by Ate­lier Wag­ner. The stu­dio re­tained the her­itage-listed build­ing’s cracked sand­stone walls, pine floors and tim­ber rafters, adding a fire­place, mar­ble bar and leather ban­quettes for a con­tem­po­rary edge. The menu of­fers a mod­ern take on tra­di­tional Ital­ian fare, with dishes such as prawn risotto with mar­jo­ram gre­mo­lata and Sar­dinian-style goat leg with po­lenta dumplings, olive and fennel. The sig­na­ture dish is the bis­tecca alla fiorentina, a flavour­some 1kg steak which is per­fect for shar­ing.
