On the popular Rathdowne Street restaurant strip, between Palmerston and Kay Streets.PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Moreton’s Brasserie is a suburban treasure offering a quintessentially French dining experience. Situated in a quaint terrace house, this charming restaurant epitomises French bistro style. Small and intimate, the ambience of Moreton’s owes as much to its genial host Jenny Walsh as it does to the candle-lit, linen-clad tables, exposed beams and colourful French posters. Diners are made to feel at home as they settle in with the offer of an aperitif and a blackboard list of the day’s specials. Coming to Melbourne after restaurant stints in France and the UK, Walsh and husband Chris Rees had a desire for a more intimate venture than their previous UK enterprise, and for almost ten years have offered their own blend of warm hospitality and provincial French cuisine, with the rustic character of an authentic Gallic backstreet eatery.
