Melbourne: 2 Day, To Eat

I could write a novel on top-class establishments to eat and drink in Melbourne.

New York (my other spiritual home) has them in abundance but Melbourne provides an instant, more digestible slice.

But in the interests of our modern-day attention spans, I will hit you with a handful of venues that can slot nicely into a 2 day trip.
