From little things, big things grow! What began as One Square in Elsternwick, has grown into Ten Square in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. Housed in what was formerly the world-renowned Hardware Société, Ante and Diana Zeljko have taken residence down this bustling city laneway, and brought their take on Melbourne’s food culture. Manager Patrick Mongan knows the ropes when it comes to being a hospitable host, and I felt ever so comfortable in his capable hands. Coffee is sourced from Duke, with a selection of options that included filter brew from Burundi. Definitely worth coming back for. The menu presents a dining experience you’d expect from a restaurant, which seems to be trending in Melbourne lately. Think Braised Mushrooms perched on soft polenta; Black Sesame Panna Cotta with Champagne poached strawberries, dragonfruit and kiwi sorbet; and my personal favourite- Yellowfin snapper with cauliflower puree and house made ricotta. They also do cocktails, and true to form, I would strongly suggest the Espresso Martini! Where? 120 Hardware Street, Melbourne. Say hi to Di if she’s around!
