Poodle Bar & Bistro
Poodle Bar & Bistro is a refined reimagining of a 20th Century European bar and restaurant on Gertrude St, Fitzroy by husband and wife Zoë Rubino and Emilio Scalzo. The impressive double-fronted venue is designed by Bergman & Co and features an intimate 40-seat dining room, public bar, large courtyard, upstairs cocktail bar and private dining room.
Poodle offers a classic European inspired menu with hints of mid-century hotel charm. Led by Head Chef Josh Fry, who has spent the past seven years at some of Melbourne's best restaurants including Marion Wine Bar and Cumulus Inc, the menu has been created to hero local farmers and sustainably sourced produce.
