Two Wrongs definitely make a right
It's a little bit fine dining and a little bit divey; something the owners of South Yarra's newly opened Two Wrongs like to call fine diving.

It's a little bit trashy, a little bit treasure where glam meets grunge and the cocktails (and food) are fabulous.

The location, just underneath The Olsen Hotel is right on the beaten path of Chapel Street and opens up to a huge space of glam where old world Renaissance paintings are paired up with modern graffiti art and the Versace cutlery is set on a distress wooden table.

Ideal for a catch up with friends, weekend dinner and drinks or even private parties (there's an upstairs with its own bar and private area), it's also a great place to chill out on a Wednesday night, when for just $5 you can enter the Nintendo 64 Mario Kart tournament in the back bar/lounge area and score yourself a case of beer or some bottles of bubbles!

With a seriously strong cocktail list, this 'Stoned Sailor' is a solid choice. Image:The Ideas Library


With a cocktail list that'll have you coming back again and again to try something new, we sussed out the 'Stoned Sailor' pictured above. It's similar to an Old Fashioned and served with Sailor Jerry rum, sugar syrup and Angostura Bitters in a smoked jar (or in this case a glass skull). With a little bit of truffled popcorn to nibble on with your drinks, you'll be set for the night.

The dinner menu is great for ordering a bit of everything and sharing away. We were recommended the pork donuts, somethign a little bit like a pork bun, but way (WAY) better. The bread is more like a brioche and is fluffy and sweet topped with peach relish, pecans and a little smidge of harissa, this dish is amazing and you'll be wishing you ordered more super fast!!

In the kitchen, Two Wrongs has a young team full of innovative culinary ideas. They've hailed from the likes of popular Cutler & Co as well as Qualia resort and bring a stylish and sophisticated menu that's fun of delicious quirks.

Also on the menu, we sussed out the San Danielle Prosciutto with zucchini flower, apple and ginger beer (way better than the typical melon and prosciutto combo.)

We also tried the Beef and Broccoli, a tasty plate with short rib beef that melts in your mouth, tiny pickled broccoli pieces, nettle and plenty of yum.

If you're heading in on a weekend, get on early and enjoy the atmosphere that gets lively quick! And definitely come along with your mates because ordering more plates equals trying more dishes!
