This place offers mostly organic produce, including some organic wines. Based generally on Japanese-inspired noodle, ramen, and soba dishes to which the kitchen adds meat, chicken, or seafood, it’s casual yet satisfying dining. The best way to eat here is to order dishes to share. The food is creative, and the view across the square to the Yarra River and Southbank is a delight at dusk. It can get very crowded, so book ahead if you can.
