Earlier this week, my friend Shelly and I took our babies out for lunch to Greenhouse by Joost, a pop-up restaurant in Melbourne’s CBD as part of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival.
The sustainable structure sits on the Yarra’s edge, corner of Southbank and Queensbridge, Melbourne. Notice the rooftop garden bar? Would be perfect for an evening cocktail! There’s also a great short time-laps film of the construction of Greenhouse. Click here to watch the movie.
Coffee and tea served in hand made terracotta tumblers, available for purchase on www.byjoost.com

In the ‘shipping crate’ kitchen, Chef Matt Stone prepares lunch using locally grown, seasonal ingredients, with herbs freshly picked from the roof-top garden, wheat milled onsite and yoghurt and butter made from organic milk and cream.
Greenhouse by Joost runs until 21st March during the 2012 Melbourne Food & Wine Festival. Entry is free, however they don’t take bookings, so there might be a short wait for a table. It’s probably best to tram or train into the city as we paid more for parking then our actual meal! Oy vay! Visit www.melbournefoodandwine.com.au for more information.
