Melburnians are enjoying the Australian new year, with sunny days and warm evenings ideal for outdoor dining. Within a vibrant culinary scene, a fresh and exciting crop of new local eateries have emerged. Here we introduce the most highly anticipated cafes and restaurants of the season.
Primely located in the heart of the Chapel St precinct, is Abacus, a modern Australian café focused on sustainability. Offering all day dining, the South Yarra eatery bakes their own breads and features Peninsula-sourced mushrooms, giving their menu an individual twist on classic Melbourne dining.
A short tram-hop away is Sash Japanese, Windsor’s new Japanese fusion restaurant. The original-concept ‘pizza bar’ blends together modern and traditional Japanese flavours, curated by expert chefs. With artfully designed dishes including hoisin duck ‘sashizza’ and spicy tuna sashimi tacos, Sash Japanese creates a truly unique experience.
Long Chim, the fourth branch from award-winning chef David Thompson, is a new addition to the Southbank scene at Crown. The carefully considered menus showcase the best of gourmet and street food Thai, with shareable dishes full of unique, authentic flavour.
Recently reopened, the Tolarno Eating House & Bar is quickly reestablishing itself as St Kilda’s local institution.
Original Mirka Mora murals adorn the dining room walls, creating a welcoming atmosphere. Seasonal menus delight, featuring kingfish ceviche and triple-cooked rare breed pork belly.

A stone’s throw from Camberwell Village, is café Light Years, showcasing a wide variety of modern cuisine, Asian flavours and vegetarian-friendly options. The theatrical ‘pixel avocado’ dish is a standout for the Melbourne foodie.
In the Bayside district is Mediterranean-inspired Hellenic Republic Brighton. Focused on seafood and plant-based eating, the Hellenic Health menu was formed in collaboration with La Trobe University, encouraging a lifestyle of leisure.
