This Chinesesque restaurant sits just between the CBD and the Bay, in refined Albert Park. Run in a very handson manner by vinophile Ken Yuen, the tastefully decorated, long, thin dining room is never without at least a couple of winemakers, wine salespeople, wine importers, wine auctioneers or wine writers brooding over Yuen’s fabulous wine list. It’s a list that’s both global and boutique, high-end yet value-for-money. Fancy some DRC? He’s got two dozen examples from vintages back to 2006—Richebourg, La Tâche, Echezeaux, Romanée-St-Vivant and Romanée-Conti…. Fair prices, too.
