Ink seafood restaurant, on the corner of Alexandra Parade and Rae St in North Fitzroy, closed a few months ago. When it first opened I thought it was excellent, but the psychological barrier that makes this location a patronage blackspot evidently tool its toll. I’m surprised therefore to see another restaurant trying its luck in the same venue – surely this old pub should be converted into residences and let that be the end of it. Judging from employment ads online, Bottegon is just getting started and when I walked past I could not see a menu in the window. I’m not sure it has even opened yet.
goodbye Ink, hello Bottegon
