"Chloe's" restaurant is as fabulous as the famous painting
We were initially drawn to the historic Young and Jackson Hotel in Melbourne to see the world-famous iconic painting "Chloe", which takes pride of place in the upstairs bar adjoined to the aptly named Chloe's Bistro. The artwork was painted in 1875 by French artist Jules Joseph Lefebvre and has resided at Young and Jackson's since 1909.

A most delicious lunch!


After a winter warming glass of mulled wine, we were then tempted to stay and enjoy a meal in the bistro and we were certainly glad that we chose to do so!

Divine Bruschetta!


For starters, we enjoyed the bruschetta with toppings of vine tomatoes, basil, rocket, buffalo mozzarella and olive & balsamic vinegar, with the dish being so delicious - especially the cheese!
The cost of this wonderful shared entree was $15 for two pieces.

The Pork Belly


Our main meals were just as fabulous. The cumin-spiced lamb tenderloin with cauliflower couscous, baby spinach and pomegranate salad with pepitas and honey, plus lemon and mint yoghurt was exceptional. The cost of this meal was $29.50.

The pork belly with activated charcoal, semolina gnocchi romana, apple and saffron puree, chorizo and potato bomba was cooked beautifully. The cost of this dish was $28.50.

The famous painting "Chloe


There was no room for desserts unfortunately, but the menu looked fantastic, especially the tiramisu with orange and pistachio biscotti. These delights will hopefully be enjoyed on our next visit.
