Set the table

Eating at home tonight? Melbourne's restaurant and bar scene serves up a virtual platter of at-home offerings, takeaway and home delivery for when you can't make it to the table.

Why not let our expert bartenders, sommeliers and hatted chefs keep doing what they do best. All you have to do is set your table at home and polish your best wine glasses for a memorable dining experience.

Jump online for Japanese omakase from three-hatted Minamishima, complete with sommelier-selected vino or sake. Hankering for pasta? Dial up a Grossi a Casa Italian spread from hatted favourite Grossi Florentino.

Pick up dishes from Northcote's fine diner The Estelle, spice it up with modern Indian from Tonka, or order smokehouse meats, mac 'n' cheese, pickles and BBQ sauce from Fancy Hank's for an unbeatable TV meal.

There's no need to go dry either (unless you want to). Many of our best cocktail bars, wine bars and drinking dens are ready for delivery to your door. Try the Moon Dog World drive-thru for quick-smart craft beer, or click for a cocktail from a top Melbourne mixologist at The Everleigh.

You can support these enterprising small businesses and many more with a pre-purchased gift card or pick up juicy takeaways via Providoor and Mr Yum and foodie deals with Eat Club.

For those who also like to get creative in the kitchen, you'll find plenty of ways to shop online from Victoria's wineries, dairies, breweries and markets, who are ready to deliver fresh produce for your pantry and outstanding vintages for your home wine cellar.
