Sample the high life
I don't usually venture over to St Kilda after work, but my friend had invited me as she wanted to try a new restaurant and had booked the sampler menu.
Miss Fitzy's is an elegant restaurant with cheeky art deco monochrome prints and sumptuous leather seating.
It was moderately busy when we arrived, but the spaces between tables was enough to make sure all guests had a cosy booth of their own.
We had a view of the passing traffic along Fitzroy Street and glimpses of the beach. I was pleasantly surprised by how much Fitzroy Street is changing into a stylish restaurant strip.
The sampler menu meant we got to taste two small dishes for entrée, mains and dessert plus a glass of wine each.
For entrée we had the oysters shucked to order, with champagne gel. I'm not a big fan, but my friend loved it. My entrée favourite was the confit of suckling pork belly, cinnamon, apple with pork crackling.
For mains we had salmon and grain fed beef with some of the most delicious mashed potato I'd had in awhile.
For dessert there was a sampling of chocolate mouse and an original take on lemon meringue; it looked like a spaceship, was delicious and I devoured in two mouthfuls.
