A new restaurant opened in March and obvisouly I needed to go. I met Trent, the Australian owner who lived many years in France, in particularly Lyon. I was pleasantly surprised to find back the French atmosphere, the type of place where you can speak loudly, share good laugh and time with your "amis", well experience a French cosy atmosphere in the heart of the "French area" Toorak. I do also love the name of the restaurant "Tu" which means "you" but the you that you used between friends. Because at Tu, it's all about you. Bravo Trent!

Experience the real atmosphere of a bistro, a French home-style cooking served in a cosy place. You are not going to resist to the "bonne humeur" (good mood) of Thierry and personally I love listening his accnet from the South of France.

A "Comment vas-tu?" with a smiling face, bienvenue to the French gastronomic world of Géraud. When I said to him I was doing a blog, he took time to have a look, he said to me "wow génial (great)" and he sent me everything I needed in the following hour. Merci for your support.

Florian Gerardin reinvent totally the French traditional meals with a modern cuisine in a minimalistic atmosphere. And we totally understand why he called his restaurant Ôter (meaning take off) when we come in his atmosphere. I just totally love it.

If you are looking for a breathe from Brittany (Bretagne), it is the place to go to eat delicious crêpes and galettes. And the plus, a young and dynamic French team.

A Parisian Stockhouse, except we are in Melbourne and there is the sun. Love sitting at this place, order a café and a croissant (but please for a French lady, do not need a knife), observe people and let me be inspired for my future posts.
