The Verdict

One of the OG's in the fried-chicken scene, Belles has been a go-to on Gertrude Street for some time now. The cosy 70’s style diner space first opened up in 2014 by fine-dining chefs Morgan McGlone and Aaron Turner. After spending time living and working in Nashville, Tennessee the duo knew they had to bring the city’s famous hot chicken to the streets of Melbourne. 

The style of the place is comfort food that makes you feel good.
Bite after bite of one of their hot chicken tenders or their spicy chicken slider, we’re pretty sure you’ll agree. It’s the perfect spot to hang with friends while enjoying a neighbourhood style meal and washing it down with their house ale —‘Belles Original Draught’ or a wine. 

Their chicken options are simple—with four cuts of chicken and six heat levels, there are delicious options for all. Served up in the American-style red trays; you can devour your chicken while soaking up the laid-back pace of the Gertrude diner with soulful tunes about and good vibes. The atmosphere really is as great as the food, and the warm interior with booth-style chairs and wooden tables make it great for a more intimate catch-up or a larger gathering with mates. Either way, good company and fried chicken? It’s a no brainer really.
