It'll take more than a little fire to shut down The Pinnacle. The iconic oddly-shaped Fitzroy North pub was put briefly out of action after a conflagration took out the ground floor in November 2015. They were back serving brews just a few months later, and got their new kitchen up and running in the back end of last year. Their new menu features a killer mix of pub classics and fancy fare. Frankly, you'd be hard pressed to find a better way to spend a summer arvo than chowing down on a parma, or a grilled kangaroo salad, in their sunny, welcoming beer garden.
