A La Bouffe Bar & Bistro
To quote one of our bloggers HenryNSW “Wonder where the local French go for a taste of home? Wonder no more”. A La Bouffe is where you will experience true French hospitality. When the French back home get together with friends and family to prepare a meal, when all the chopping, mixing and baking is done, the cook calls out “a la bouffe” let’s eat, and everyone sits down to enjoy their home cooked meal. That is what you will experience at A La Bouffe – an informal, friendly and delicious experience. No pretensions, just good friendly service and delicious food. When French visitors are feeling home sick for some Cream Brulée or Clafoutis (traditional sour cherry pudding) this is where they visit. Jacky Frenot and Gabrielle Dewan, owners of A La Bouffe Bar & Bistro invite you to come to our little corner of France in the middle of Prahran and South Yarra shopping precinct and indulge your senses with our extensive range of popular traditional French dishes and contemporary style dishes as specials. Try our Seafood Millefeuille, puff pastry with mussels, scallops and prawns in seafood bisque. Or our Pavé a La Bearnaise, grass fed Goulburn Valley beef thick eye fillet, Pommes Sarladaises, green salad and Béarnaise sauce . Just two samples from our menu. There is an extensive wine list featuring French and Australian wines, aperitifs and beers. We are across the road from the Como Palace Cinema and we are open to late. So after the film, finish off a perfect evening with a glass of wine or champagne, or a coffee and one of A La Bouffe’s signature desserts. As MoMo & Coco describe A La Bouffe: “beautiful heartfelt food delivered by unpretentious staff in an utterly elegant setting….Overall, A La Bouffe is a fine showcase of rather authentic, accessible French luxury….”
Cherry is pretty much the best rock n’ roll bar in the world. Cherry Bar was founded in late 1999, today it is owned by founding partners Jim Bourke, Lazy Pete and James Young. Cherry is the only business located in world famous AC/DC Lane Melbourne (off Flinders Lane and between Russell and Exhibition Streets) right in the heart of the Melbourne business district. A jewel in the junk heap or maybe an annoying boil on corporate arse cheeks? Despite its modest 200 capacity Cherry is an internationally famous late night street rock n’ roll bar. Quality local acts play live (always finishing by 11.30pm), then DJs keep the joint jumping till the wee hours. Cherry has become the destination for local, interstate and international bands to descend upon and party after they’ve finished playing live themselves. We don’t need to name drop. You never know who you might meet at Cherry. The rear Jenni Bar is available for private parties.
