Melbourne Restaurants Open on Monday Nights

Last Monday I found myself wondering around Smith, Gertrude and Brunswick Streets trying to find a decent restaurant to have dinner in.  A number of places I wanted to try had their lights off so we struck onto our next option – to find exactly the same thing – closed.  We were also asked by some wayward tourists as to dinner recommendations but were hesitant to help as many of our hot tips may be been closed.

So in light of this I am presenting Melbourne Restaurants Open on Monday Nights to combat that aimless wandering around town with fingers crossed.  I provide direct links to the website of each restaurant and also through to Urbanspoon so you can keep your finger on the pulse of each establishment.

This is by no means a definitive list so if I have missed out on anywhere please leave the suggestion in the comments section and I will add it to the list.

Keep on sharking…

p.s. After looking at all of the restaurant websites I could become a consultant in what not to do when designing a restaurant website.  Dear lord there are some shockers (Music, Flash, Load Time, Design, Front Page Basics and the like) – especially from the higher end.  But I may keep that as a separate blog post.

Looking for something different?

Scarf are pretty excited to announce we are heading to Fitzroy North’s Jorg for a series of Scarf ‘pop up’ Dinners, as part of their Spring season.
This time they’re doing things a bit differently, with Jorg head chef Bryce Bernhardt designing and cooking a modern European seasonal menu, which will be served to our dinner guests by Scarf front-of-house trainees and their mentors. For more information on dinners and how to book, head to www.scarfcommunity.orgScarf borrows restaurants to provide hospitality training and mentoring to young people facing barriers to work..
