The French Brasserie
The French Brasserie is a decidedly French-flavoured oasis in the - how appropriate! - “Paris End” of Melbourne. Set just off Flinders Lane, it’s an ever-popular mainstay of the area’s dining precinct. It’s a testament to the restaurant and its team that The French Brasserie has stuck around for as long as it has. The goings-on are, from all accounts, delicious, and steeped in old-school class. Old-school class is definitely the way one might describe the menu at The French Brasserie. It’s full of classic French cooking, done really, really well. High ceilings tower above diners, and the sumptuously designed restaurant. Service too is the attentive, old-world charm kind. Which is just fine with us. As a function venue, The French Brasserie is well versed in playing host to everything from weddings to corporate events, to important dinners. For those after a little bit of privacy without forgoing the warm and buzzing atmosphere, there’s a pleasing mezzanine level perched just above the restaurant. The French Brasserie is found tucked away on Malthouse Lane, just off Flinders Lane. Which in turn is just off Exhibition Street, and near the corner of Flinders Street. Parliament is the nearest train station, although Flinders Street station isn’t too far away.
