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 out-wineguess one another; Monday lunch is often cassoulet and a red that’s d’Oc, for recovery’s sake… Steak frites and a bottle of local pinot—Moorooduc, Freycinet, Bass Phillip—in a bistro that’s all too Parisian. Just to the east of town.
11-13 Toorak Rd., S. Yarra, Victoria, Australia
