Jeff and I have driven past the North Fitzroy Arms about a hundred times in the last few months. Every time I say 'Oh we should go there!' It's getting old, but tonight we finally remembered to check it out!
Tucked away in quiet Rae Street, the Arms is a sweet little local with a bar at the front, a restaurant out the back and a pretty good menu. There are plenty of gluten free and vego options and heaps of wine by the glass.
Tonight I had a seafood spaghetti with chili and a glass of Mornington Peninsula Pinot.
Jeff had the fish of the day which was Atlantic Salmon on a light tomato risotto.
Both dishes were excellent. My seafood pasta was light and fresh tasting, the prawns and mussels were juicy and the chili really lifted the white wine sauce.
The service was friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed and warm. Its seems like a place that a lot of people love, people seem at ease here.
Both our mains and a glass of wine each came to $66. We really loved the Arms and were talking about what we wanted to order next time.
