Tucked down Alfred Place, at the Paris end of Melbourne, lies Garçon. Garçon brings a renewed but familiar look at French cuisine while paying homage to the grand tradition of French Bistros.
Inspired by Paris in the 80s, a time when French culture pervaded the globe in a way it hadn’t done before. Betty Blue left film audiences abuzz. Grace Jones and countless other artists and bon vivants took up residence. Pierre Cardin and French Vogue influenced the world of fashion. Amid the haute couture, an underground punk scene emerged, giving the City of Love a new edge.
Garçon serves a menu inspired by the famous quality steakhouses of Paris, with sublime steak frites, an abundance of champagne and oysters and a vibrant wine list.
It’s a place where everyone from the avant-garde to the bourgeois can come together, much like Paris in the 80s. In the Paris end of Melbourne, we think it’s found a perfect home.
