Maison Du Bon www.maisondubon.com I first visited Paris when I was 10 years old. It was the middle of winter, and the air cut through the skin like ice. The sort of coldness that one would ordinarily need to bat away, with a warm, fluffy blanket or a steaming cup of cocoa. Yet, surprisingly, it was the one place where the coldness did not bother me – all one had to do was look up, and any hint of it would immediately vanish. The beauty of the place, in all its history and intimate splendour, was enough to take one’s breath away. In an instant, I had fallen in love with the city. And oh, let me tell you about the food.

Little Collins St Kitchen Location: Level 1 Sheraton Melbourne, 27 Little Collins St, VIC 3000 Contact: 03 9290 1051 After arriving up the marbled stairway encompassed by large woody panels, tall chandeliers and glitzy lobby, entering into Little Collins St Kitchen was like walking into a different country. Light cream textured tiles, white wooden armchairs and plush grey couches. It was warm and welcoming, like a French provincial kitchen, making it a welcome change to the oppressively dark, stark interiors normally common to such dining establishments.

Counting House

Counting House Location: 787 Esplanade Mornington, VIC 3931 Contact: 03 5975 2055 Had a phenomenal time at Counting House over the weekend thanks to M & E. The place is absolutely gorgeous; a quaint, cottage-like restaurant that is all bits rustic glamour and chic. It draws on natural elements – the lights are encased by branches, the long windows are lined with bright red flowers, and the glassware and ornaments bear the restaurant’s cute logo – a little black bird.
