All hail, fellow chowhounders. I will spend sep 16-21 in Melbourne CBD on a conference and my Princess has deigned to accompany me. She is, as always, picky when it comes to quality and ambience and I am picky when it comes to price/quality ratio... She likes romantic restaurants and old buildings, cozy bars and proper food. I have therefore made a tentative list and would like comments from the gentle city folks that live in Melbourne gourmet heaven...
sep 16: excursion w rental car: lunch at cerberus beach house. Dinner at congress venue
sep 17: lunch at Millsbucks, dinner in the Tramcars
sep 18: lunch at Gill´s Diner, dinner at Cumulus
sep 19: lunch at Comme Kitchen dinner at Meat and Wine Company
sep 20: lunch at Coda, dinner at congress venue
Lots of C´s.Will this be an A experience at a reasonable price or could I do better? The Oz dollar is frightfully strong at the moment and the Princess has married a Pauper.
