There's a change ahead for South Yarra's food scene, with the announcement that Ramblr — the beloved restaurant from Nick Stanton, Guy Bentley, Mark Catsburg and Jon Harper — is calling it quits, set to close its doors for good on Saturday, March 2.

The owners broke the news yesterday via Instagram, thanking both crew and fans for two great years as part of the Chapel Street family, and saying that the restaurant had far exceeded their expectations. "We would like to thank everyone who has been involved with Ramblr - it has been such an amazing experience," it said.

It has been a busy few months for the four, who launched their latest venture Leonardo's Pizza Palace in Carlton, just last December.

Stanton, Bentley, Catsburg and Harper first opened Ramblr at the end of 2016, off the back of their ever-popular debut joint venue, Leonard's House of Love. The Chapel Street restaurant has been pulling in the crowds ever since, famed for its detail-driven fare and polished, yet casual vibe. And, of course, those pig's head fritters.

It's not all bad news, however — the boys have hinted at some fun things ahead for the current Ramblr site, with plans for an "exciting new concept" to open there soon.

Find Ramblr at 363 Chapel Street, South Yarra until Saturday, March 2.
