Kid sister of Carlton's popular Town Mouse, Embla's quiet confidence has hit a chord with gourmands and wine lovers across Melbourne. Somehow managing to win Best New Restaurant in The Age Good Food Guide, while technically being a wine bar is no small feat. Which says something about the culinary imagination of executive chef Dave Verheul and his team of over achievers. Pop into this rustic space, complete with bare brick, exposed beams and wood fired oven, tuck into the steak tartare, and take your pick of the esoteric wine list. And there you have it – you've found your new favourite. Did we mention they also got a star from the Australian Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide?
