Melbourne now has a very large number of pubs and bistros serving food that varies from indifferent to excellent. Last night we tried La Luna which, I had heard, served most excellent rabbit. Unfortunately it was not on the menu.
We started with a squid risotto nero ($33.5) made from a fine small grain Australian arborio rice.
It is stuffed with aging sides of beef, air drying prosciuto and other goodies.
We had a scotch fillet ($36.5 for 320 gm) cooked to perfection, in a red wine jus with mashed potato and topped with a large mushroom. Our second main was a shoulder of pork wrapped in crackling on a bed of cabbage with a few slices of carrot and topped with mash ($35.5) n excellent piece of meat tender an very juicy - I loved it.
This is definitely at the top end of bistro dining and well worth a revisit and I don’t think I need to wait for the rabbit!
