The Verdict

From the legends behind Ferdydurke, Section 8 and B.East, we present one of the best venues in the whole damn CBD—Belleville.

The venue itself is tucked down Globe Alley, behind some skips and up a flight of stairs. It's a heritage-listed building, which gives it the perfect blend of grunge and street smarts. Lucky for us night owls, the kitchen serves until 1am, making it the perfect late-night pit-stop.

Over the last few years, this place has become a regular Melbourne institution. A crumbling indie beer and chicken bar,  with a heavy focus on Asian-fusion and South American flavours (yep, both kimchi AND rotisserie chicken #winning). That's how Belleville built its rep. But now they've pivoted slightly—they're still doing some of the best roast and fried chicken in town, but now they're broadening the menu. Bringing in a few big share plates to kick-start some bigger group dining. 

And trust us, the new look is damn delicious.

The updated menu includes headline acts from a food lover’s wildest dreams. Tempting plates like maple-roasted nashi dumplings (nashi pears glazed with maple syrup, slow roasted then tossed in cinnamon sugar. Excuse us, what?). Or maybe a few chargrilled lemongrass pork skewers (hello, beautiful) and local Kingfish and crab ceviche. There are also a few gluten-free and vegetarian options for you picky eaters out there. 

Belleville has also updated and expanded their wine list, offering only the best of the best from Victoria (holla!), Tasmania and France. What did we do to deserve this?! If you’re not on your way to Belleville yet, what are you doing with your life, mate? We’ll see you there.
