Eco-Friendly Council

Inadvertently, we're very ecologically aware. Many of our favourite artists and designers favour using sustainable materials, chefs and restaurants we love only serve organic, and simply because of our lifestyle and where we live, we care about feeling the freshest, coldest, cleanest wind possible (especially when catching the ferry at 7am on a winter morning!!).

Because of all of these reasons, we were very excited to stumble upon an article about CH2 which is an environmentally sustainable headquarters in the heart of the City of Melbourne. More excitedly, is Council House 2 Restaurant (Shop 1/218-240 Little Collins Street, Melbourne 61 03 9639 7778) a beautiful restaurant serving (where possible) locally grown and bred organic produce.

Chefs Rob Kabboord (ex Claude's and Quay for the Sydneysiders amongst us) and Marc Brown (who once cooked for the f-ing Stones...WOOT!) send out contemporary and fresh dishes in the most idyllic of surroundings. Industrial space has been converted to feature a sleek bar, without compromising the integrity of the original building. Recycled timber tables and modern artwork complete this gorgeous restaurant.

Looking forward to checking this pup out with our lovely friend Lucas (in between glasses of riesling at Karen Martini's Melbourne Wine Room 125 Fitzroy St St Kilda, 61 03 9525 5599 and lushin' it at Cookie 252 Swanston Street Melbourne 61 03 9663 7660!!!)
