Fitzrovia, now celebrating our 9th year, is a cafe and restaurant serving St Kilda locals. Using only high quality, locally sourced dishes with a distinctly Australian character.
Fitzrovia specialises in contemporary Australian cuisine with an international flavour. It’s the 20 years that owner and head chef Paul Jewson spend running kitchens throughout Europe that has given him a passion for seasonal ingredients prepared with good technique. Jewson often found himself cooking with imported ingredients there, even while working at top-tier venues such as Soho House and River Cafe. In response to this, Fitzrovia prides itself on sourcing as local and sustainably as possible.
At Fitzrovia, boxes of fruit and vegetables line the stairs and herbs peep out from the light fittings, trumpeting an opposing philosophy. Back-of-house, chefs draw on prime Victorian produce such as Glenora Heritage vegetables, Ovens Valley free-range chicken and South Gippsland lamb.
