The Verdict

There’s a new bistro and bottle shop in Fitzroy North, and we're happy to say it's nailing the food and wine game. ‘The Rec’, as the locals like to call it, is run by a team of experts in the food, wine and service industries, so you know every element is going to be top notch. You’ll be spoilt for choice with wine selections from around the world, including Aussie, French and Spanish bottles. The bistro is also BYO (a nice surprise), so you won’t have to sacrifice that special bottle just to enjoy their spectacular food.

As for the menu, most dishes have a rich and bold European flair, with French cuisine featuring prominently. What could be more indulgent than smoked duck and mushroom tortellini, or veal tartare with pickled radish, leek and wasabi rouille? A specially built charcoal grill is also a winner, dishing up chargrilled calamari or crispy eggplant night after night.
