Hearth
review by Joshua Greene

If you crave a bowl of broth on a winter’s night, there’s no warmer or more welcoming place to go than Hearth. And if that broth is made from seaweed, with shiitake and hijiki, ask Christine Wright for a glass of Manzanilla—the Maruja, from Bodegas Juan ...Read the full review

Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria
review by Tara Q. Thomas

Umbrian-born Roberto Paris started at Il Buco in 1997, helping Donna Lennard turn her NoHo antiques store-cum-café into a full-fledged restaurant. His wine list became as much a draw as the food, which launched chefs like Jody Williams and Ignacio Mattis to culinary fame. That restaurant is still very much ...Read the full review

Boulud Sud
review by Tara Q. Thomas

Amanda Smeltz wasn’t the most obvious choice to take over a wine program in a Midtown Manhattan restaurant. Before she came to Bar Boulud and Boulud Sud, across from Lincoln Center, Smeltz was in the hinterlands ...Read the full review

France-Soir
review by Ben Canaider

An institution with a cellar built up over 25 years, France-Soir features Australia’s best wines and also a staggeringly impressive French section ranging from the friendly and a ordable to wines suited to a billionaires’ club. Saturday luncheon sees a regular table of Melbourne’s wine elite gather to ...Read the full review

City Wine Shop
review by Ben Canaider

A top-end of town wine mecca, sitting opposite Parliament House. Dark-timber paneling, a tiled bar and assured, natural wine service: You could be in France. You could be in Spain. Because Melbourne is a truly international city. Twenty wines by the glass—Germany, Georgia, Australia, Sicily, Burgundy—always changing. ...Read the full review

Lupino
review by Ben Canaider

A bustling, busy and polished bistro, Lupino feeds and refreshes the palates of Melbourne’s corporate and political wine and food connoisseurs, but it is in no way buttoned-down. It’s just well run. You can tell by the service, informal yet excellent. The menu ranges from a thin, ...Read the full review

Scopri
review by Ben Canaider

Located just north of the city, in Carlton, the Italian quarter, behind an unassuming set of rough farmhouse doors, there’s the perfectly simple Italian dining room that is Scopri. Whiteclothed tables, sturdy wooden café chairs, a blackboard full of specials and an old schoolroom map of Italy are ...Read the full review

Octavia
review by Luke Sykora

Like Frances, Melissa Perello’s Castro restaurant, Octavia feels unassuming, with little in the way of décor—at both spots, she lets the food do the talking. Here, you might start with cold squid ink noodles with bottarga, a salty and primal introduction to the purity of her ...Read the full review

The Progress
review by Luke Sykora

Rubicon alums Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski opened The Progress as a next-door companion to their runaway hit State Bird Provisions. With its high ceilings, striated woodwork and multiple cozy balconies, it’s hard to place: perhaps the hold of a schooner designed by Swedish modernists, outfitted for a ...Read the full review

Nopa
review by Barbara Haimes

A crowd seems to constantly fill the long, bustling bar at Nopa, drinking craft cocktails while they wait for tables. Laurence Jossel and crew turn out rustic dishes made with great, o en local ingredients—from fried duck wings with peach jam to a simple but legendary dish of ...Read the full review

Flour + Water
review by Luke Sykora

Head straight for the pasta—chef Thomas McNaughton has brought back all sorts of regional specialties from his trips to Italy, from pici and maltagliati and casoncelli to more recognizable styles like rabbit tortellini, all quite addictive. The wines, like the pastas, are pan-Italian, with selections ranging from Alto ...Read the full review
