After a cool running on the Botanic Garden, I found on my way a Parisian restaurant called Entrecôte that has evolved from being a little French steakhouse in Melbourne inspired by the Relais de L’Entrecôte in Paris . Besides lately having craving with French food, I couldn’t say not, to try it.
Moreover I wasn’t dressed up properly for the occasion, to enjoy a lunch or dinner here. Because the French restaurant looked like stylish and elegant. But I was ready for the little store on the corner, also part of the restaurant. Where you can find local and French groceries to take away, as I did to eat it in front of the Botanic Garden with a tasty bacon and eggs muffin and a beautiful latte.
However that is not all, also you can make a booking and set up a picnic in the garden with beautiful French food.
Furthermore, the famous little French Tarts homemade pies and Mr. Jones sausage rolls. Besides in the French kitchen is also doing made-to-order brunch classics such as ham and cheese croissants, Croque Monsieur, ‘Mitraillete’ and of course Entrecôte Cheeseburger. In addition, I can’t forget the beautiful warm coffee that also is made here.
