Graceburn Bistro is the perfect excuse for a drive to the Yarra Valley. The weekend-only dinner offering from local winemaking legend Mac Forbes and chef Erik Koel is a new direction for the Healesville venue, which has been operating for the past three years as a daytime wine bar and cellar door.

In the kitchen, Koel is celebrating simplicity with a one-page menu of unpretentious fare. It's seasonal, produce-driven and made to be shared. Forbes' own award-winning drops will headline the wine list, joined by a curated selection of bottles from both overseas and closer to home.

The space itself is intimate, with room for just over 30 diners, though it packs a punch in the design department at the hands of architect Zenta Tanaka (whose work you've seen at the likes of CIBI and Mina.no.ie).
