Fitzroy’s Fleeting Pop Up Restaurant

Posted by


It’s pretty much a given that most weeks they’ll be a pop up of some sort happening in Melbourne. Taking the theme to the next level are housemates Marcello Donati and Joe Rubbo, who have turned their Fitzroy house into a pop up restaurant – for one week only.

In an ambitious, bloody generous move the housies are dishing up an entree and main every night this week for the cheap-as-chips price of $15. There’s dessert too, plus beer and wine by the bottle. Every night’s a different theme: Monday was ‘Trippe alla parmigiana’ (tripe), Tuesday was lamb shanks, venison’s rumoured to be making an appearance shortly.

Things kick off at 7pm and you eat elbow-to-elbow with fellow diners in either the kitchen or dining room. It’s cosy restaurant meets dinner party, a real social dining experience where you’re guaranteed to meet some good people. It’s great. And it finishes this Friday.

Bon Appetite!
