Stunning Leucospermums – an early Christmas present for my friend Yuki. As I walked from Tribal Rose to meet her, I noticed they looked great against this pile of timber…
So I finally got to Young Bloods Diner yesterday, and was really impressed. Friendly service, interesting fitout (didn’t check out the rooftop deck as it was raining and a touch chilly), and gorgeous looking menu. My companion enjoyed her asparagus with parmesan custard and bacon vinaigrette, and my kedgeree with rockling, confit trout and coriander was superb. Loved it, want more, will be back. If only they were open for dinner as well…If you haven’t already been, find Young Bloods Diner at 60 Rose Street, Fitzroy. Right next to the Rose St Artists Market.
I visited Sue Bottomley’s exhibition in its last days and really enjoyed her work. ‘Reverie’ is a collection of 7 portraits, using acrylic on vintage wallpaper. Sadly, the gallery space was VERY sunlit when I was there – not ideal conditions for viewing works under glass. A dreamlike, introspective show, I found the combination of materials and ideas very well balanced and intriguing. Great to see subjects of all ages being potrayed, the works featuring older women were absolutely stunning! ‘Reverie’ was at 69 Smith St Gallery from 6-24 November.
I’ve never seen large scale cardboard origami before. It seemed to fit in with the hipsters, circus performers, sideshows and vintage caravans…The Village Festival, Edinburgh Gardens, Fitzroy.
