pub dinner in fitzroy

brian d | Feb 3, 201108:43 PM     3

hi, folks! i posted recently about booking for a solo adventure at movida. today i'd like to invite thoughts on pub dinner options--and possibly alternatives--in fitzroy. i'm planning to spend some afternoon hours in "chill" mode at bimbo deluxe one weekday (probably a thursday, fwiw--although wednesday may be an option), and I'm looking to grab dinner in the area, possibly after a bit of an "intermezzo" on or around brunswick street. i'll be doing $4 pizza in mid-afternoon, so i'm not sure that a HUGE dinner is a good idea. also, there is an outside shot that i continue on to der raum for cocktails--although it's equally likely that i'll head back into the CBD to end what will be my last night in town (maybe at cookie, maybe at somewhere else that i get to and take a liking to).

i'm inclined to hit up either the rose hotel or the napier hotel. (i gave some thought to the standard and rainbow hotels, too.) as for preferences, i like it casual--and grungy is okay. i tend to like to sit at the counter/bar wherever i eat/drink, especially when i'm going it alone as i will be in this case). i'm not a fan of chicken parma (gasp!), but i think that meat is the likely choice, as i don't usually eat much beef (or kangaroo or other)(i live in japan). i enjoy microbrew and imported (esp. belgian) beers, so interesting offerings are a plus, but, most of all, i'd like a solid and cheap eats option with good atmosphere.

okay, have at it (please!). your thoughts?

any input much appreciated.

sincerely,

b.
