The Blackman’s location enables you to try many different taste delights, all just a walk or short tram ride away. Our Guest Experience Team has created a diminutive selection from which to choose from.
Aquatic Drive, Albert Park Lake
The Point in Albert Park is just a hop skip and jump from us here at The Blackman. It is our go to place for local al la carte cuisine with a stylish modern setting and a very impressive wine list. The Points extends itself to both casual dining and private functions, with larger groups being able to book the Cellar, for up to 40 guests.
12-18 Yarra Pl, South Melbourne
Named after the patron saint of coffee, Ali ibn Umar al-Shadhili,St. Ali in South Melbourne is famous for its impressive range of single origin and house-blend coffee, served in a laid-back industrial warehouse-inspired setting. Effortlessly cool,tongue-in-cheek menus offer cafe foods from morning till night, including sandwiches, Mediterranean pizzas, & a modern, gourmet take on traditional comfort food like spaghetti bolognaise and bangers and mash.
Circa, The Prince
2 Acland St, St Kilda
Refurbished, refreshed and revitalised, Circa now promises the “purity of texture and flavour nature intended”. The menu and decor are more casual this time around- but no less luxe, with an emphasis on fresh, high-quality ingredients. The pride and joy of the refurbishment is the working kitchen garden which spans two levels, encircling the internal courtyard (now the main dining area) with fragrant herbs. The new organic decor is reflected in the menu, with shared tasting plates varying with seasonal ingredients and a “From the Garden” section in the menu. But don’t worry; they’ve kept their encyclopaedic and critically acclaimed wine list, along with the food’s French influences.
1 Hosier Lane, Melbourne
Lauded by Australian Gourmet Traveller as “the country’s best tapas” and credited with bringing the trend to the Melbourne masses, MoVida is the original gem in a quickly growing empire. Tucked inside a graffiti-covered lane, Chef Frank Camorra serves up authentic yet modern Latin flavours influenced by “the fincas and heurtas (farms and kitchen gardens) of the Spanish countryside”.
157 Fitzroy St, St. Kilda
Recently awarded ‘Best new Restaurant’ in The Age Good Food Guide, Golden Fields restaurant and bar on Fitzroy Street offers modern Asian flavours inspired by chef Andrew McConnell’s personal travels. Unique dishes like fresh sea urchin and chrysanthemum leaf salad mingle with old favorites such as soft-shell crab. With an emphasis on small or shared tasting plates you can enjoy as much or as little as you like.
Corner Stanley and Oxford Streets, Collingwood
Any discussion of specialty coffee in Melbourne will inevitably turn to Proud Mary’s. Since opening in late 2009, Proud Mary in Collingwood has drawn a cult following for their extensive coffee blends brewed in rare machines (the main one is affectionately referred to as ‘The God Machine’). Proud Mary may be famous for its coffee, but you can expect more than an exceptional siphon in a signature blue cup. There is also a substantial brunch menu featuring everything from the traditional poached eggs and light pancakes to pork belly sandwiches.
