Embrasse - Closed [Melbourne]

Embrasse served its last meal last night. Luckily I got to dine there 4 times and always enjoyed the experience.

It's not all bad news though. It's my understanding that the whole team from Embrasse is going across to Brooks which opens on October 17.

    Yep, that's what their email said.

      Geez, we had this on our to try list when we're visiting Melbourne after reading so many good reviews. What happened? Their website is still up but provides no explanation of why they closed.

        Not that I have the inside information but I image Nic received an offer he couldn't refuse. His whole brigade has moved to Brooks and from all reports the cooking is still as good.

        It is where the old Fifteen was, actually in George Parade (which is ACTUALLY a lane!)
