Fitzrovia is an all day dining cafe and restaurant overlooking Albert Park. Our ethos is to create luxe comfort food, inspired by provincial Italian and British cuisine – big flavours with rough edges.
From 7.00am when the first breakfast dishes leave the kitchen, and the wonderful smell of Cameron firing up the Synesso for our morning coffee fix, right the way through to the bustle of dinner service and late night cocktails, we love food; We spend most of our day working with it, selecting it, arguing about it and dreaming up new ways of using it.
Our produce is sourced from free range and organic ingredients where possible, with minimal food miles, promoting food from within 100 kilometres of Melbourne: Non-homogenized milk from Jonsey’s, butter from The Myrtleford Butter Factory, Romsey Range beef, salt, olives and oil from Mount Zero, Sutton Grange lamb, buffalo mozzarella from Shaw River, free range chicken and duck from Milawa, free-range eggs direct from Sth Gippsland, organic Port Phillip mussels and St ALi single estate coffees.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
The restaurant’s name is not just a play on its location in Fitzroy Street, but harks back to the infamous neighbourhood of Fitzrovia in the West End of London. A bohemian and artistic hub with notoriety dating back to the mid 1920’s, Fitzrovia was home to writers such as Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw, Joe Orton and Arthur Rimbaud
