2021 saw Jason M Jones' Parisian diner Entrecôte bidding farewell to its historic South Yarra digs and making the move to a new 200-seat home in Prahran's Greville Street.
This latest iteration has revived Entrecôte's trademark aesthetic while steering things into a new direction. The fitout, led by Jones' partner, designer Brahman Perera, showcases an opulent fusion of elements classic and modern, a healthy collection of fine art and plenty of bold colour. Fancy fireplaces and oak wall panelling have been imported from France and, in addition to the main dining rooms, brasserie and openair courtyard, you'll find a glamorous private event space modelled on a Parisian pied-à-terre (aka an apartment).
Once again, expect classic French brasserie fare served all day long; from breakfast croque monsieurs to dainty hors d'oeuvres to after-dinner fromage. The legendary steak frites have returned, featuring pasture-fed Cape Grim Angus porterhouse and Entrecôte's secret herb butter sauce (part of the two- or three-course 'menu gourmand'). Favourites like the escargot ($18.90) and beef tartare ($22.90) have also carried over, starring alongside a lineup of new and returning seasonal creations. Meanwhile, a supporting cocktail list by Romeo Lane's Joe Jones is about as chic as they come.
Live jazz sessions and nights devoted to Euro vinyl are both weekly occurrences, plus there are plenty more of Entrecôte's much-loved opera dinners to come.
