I may be wrong, but I think Huxtable was one of the first few restaurants that got started with the share plate concept in Melbourne. What are your thoughts about share plate venues? Like it or hate it? I’m personally not that big a fan of it, wrote a paragraph detailing why inside my post on Añada. But Huxtable seemed to have borrowed some concepts from Spanish tapas places, so the menu did make some sense here.
Either way, Damo and I didn’t even have to comprehend the menu We simply went with the set menu, priced at $50 per person. I think the meal works out cheaper if you go with that option, but I’ll still list out the dish price (where applicable) if you were to order it individually.
There was a comfortable interlude between the earlier small bites and the bigger courses that were to come next. Dusk settles across Fitzroy’s streetscape outside, and it gave Damo and I time to catch up over things. That’s the good thing about these set menus, it’s stretches your evening and you can enjoy your meal over a few hours. You also don’t have to worry whether you’ve ordered right, or if you’ve ordered enough.
