Cutler & Co. Dining Room & Bar
Cutler & Co. Dining Room is located in an old metal works factory on Gertrude Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne’s first suburb and industrial area. A recent refurbishment brings an open plan kitchen to the front of the restaurant, creating a dynamic focal point. This substantial lounge area now allows for ring-side dining, light bites and drinks, with the established Cutler & Co. experience being retained. Opened in February 2009 by Chef Andrew McConnell, the restaurant reflects his passion for exceptional and often unusual produce. Andrew’s only fine dining venue, Cutler & Co strikes a balance between elegance and simplicity. Classic Sunday lunches at Cutler & Co offer a relaxed take on Andrew's food, in the form of sharing style dishes to enjoy with friends and family. Placed in the nation's top ten restaurants at the Gourmet Traveller 2014 Awards, Andrew McConnell's flagship restaurant continues to excite the dining landscape. The conversion from metal works factory to contemporary restaurant sees high ceilings, raw walls and off beat architectural elements combine to provide a space that is both welcoming and engaging. The flexibility of the dining room encourages leisurely family lunches, business dining, appetisers and drinks at the bar, pre-theatre dinners or a full degustation experience. The restaurant can also be hired for a truly memorable exclusive event.
Bacash is situated on Domain Rd, South Yarra, close to the CBD, and only a short walk through the Botanical Gardens to the MCG and the Rod Laver Arena. Bacash Restaurant follows up on a reputation of fine seafood cooking earned at Michael and Fiona's first restaurant Toofey's. Michael and Fiona owned and operated Toofey's between 1989 and 2001 until they relocated to the more desirable surrounds of the beautiful Domain Road Village. Whilst at Toofey's Michael only cooked seafood, and since opening Bacash he has diversified the menu to appeal to a wider clientele. His uncompromising approach to quality has led to the restaurant being awarded Chef's Hats in the Age Good Food Guide from 2005 through to the most recent 2014 edition.
The Lincoln is a grand old Carlton hotel built in 1854.

The menu is available throughout the venue 7 days a week lunch and dinner, with the kitchen closing at 10pm every night and all day dining available on weekends.

The public bar has retained its art-deco features, with 12 taps featuring craft beer, showcasing speciality brewing at its best, and trusty Carlton Draught for when the footy is on the big screen. The space lends itself to a variety of areas suitable for groups of any size, whether a sit-down meal in the semi-private dining room, or standing canapés in the front bar.
