Wallis & Ed
May 11, 2018
The name of this CBD bar and restaurant which occupies the spot once home to the Melbourne outpost of the Hard Rock Café – is a sly aside to the British Royal Family, to Edward and his Mrs Simpson (the venue is affiliated with the nearby Windsor Hotel). It’s a handsome, inviting space with airy, neutral décor enlivened by brightly patterned walls and a comfortable bar area. They have a wide ranging wine list as well as an impressive selection of gins. Enjoy a pre-dinner G&T or two, and then move on to the dining room where the menu is made up of contemporary Australian dishes with European influences; the food here is really accomplished and the coffee is superb too, which in Melbourne is really saying something.
