Greek Style - My dinner table tonight

Well although it has been raining in Melbourne for hours, I don't mind because tonight I will be dining at this lovely table:












This is the Hellenic Republic in East Brunswick, one of the restaurants run by wonderful chef George Calombaris who also owns the Press Club. The Hellenic Republic is a simpler, more canteen style take on George's modern Greek food. Think whole panfried fish with lemon, roasted yellow capsicums and proper Greek salad.

I love the way they have kept this look rustic but with an edge, given by the blue and white tiles and the lobster pot light shades. And I especially love the Chinese apothocary style glass fronted drawers. Divine. I can't wait.

And after my dinner, I will pretend that I can walk out the door to this:

I love Greek food and what a fantastic space to serve it in! Greece is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Enjoy your dinner!

Mmm, thanks for the recommendation. That looks great. Was the food as good as the decor? If so, one to add to the list of "must try".

Mmmm, I'm so envious - dinner at the Hellenic Republic. You'll have to report back and let me know whether it lived up to expectations. If looks are anything to go by, it will be a wonderful meal. Lee :)
