Charcoal Lane Restaurant Melbourne
With a few hours to spare before catching the train back to Sydney, I made an impulse decision to try the Charcoal Lane Restaurant Melbourne. This is in an old stone building at 136 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy (confusingly not in Charcoal Lane). This very up-market establishment is run by Mission Australia to give Aboriginal and disadvantaged young people work experience. The food and service were excellent, as was the venue. They were setting up for a multimedia street festival, with images projected onto the windows of the building, adding excitement to the evening.
