After waiting a good 25 minutes for a veal parmigiana, it finally came complete with uncooked cheese and fridge cold ham. This was the last of four meals to come, as the other three were delivered 10 minutes earlier. This is the second time we've...More

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,
hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
find little independent shops where local clothes and
furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its
