Seamstress, Melbourne

Address: 113 Lonsdale Street

Tel: 61-3-9663-6363

Following the trend of transforming Melbourne's heritage buildings into hipster apartments, this former textiles workshop feels like a friend's über-cool warehouse flat—albeit one with a cozy bar in the basement and a top-floor lounge with patterned silks draped from the ceiling. In the first-floor dining room, chef Raymond Larkins fuses Asian and Australian flavors: taro and white fungi cakes with fried spring onions doused in a mint salsa verde; a poussin baked in rock salt with Chinese five-spice date stuffing. Cocktails have similarly exotic ingredients such as lemon oil, pearl dust, and saffron water. The rose petal fritters with saffron and mint cream are a lovely finish (entrées, $18–$27).
