Abacus Bar & Kitchen Overview

Head along Chapel Street in Melbourne’s sought after suburb of South Yarra to discover locally loved gem, Abacus Bar & Kitchen. A contemporary interior is highlighted by an industrious tone of high ceilings, a monotone palette, light installations and a life-sized garden scape, making for a relaxed and modern space welcoming patrons in to catch up over an inventive cocktail and share in quality fare. Creating a menu influenced by a farm to fork philosophy, Abacus serves seasonal produce, plated with flair, seen in smaller plates like the braised octopus with chorizo, tomato, wood-fired garlic bread and nitrogen. For a larger main, opt for O’Connors black onyx porterhouse with sage, mustard mash, charred baby carrots and watercress, finished with a broken cheesecake and mascarpone.

Best Known For

Tapas style share plates and traditionally made wood fired pizza.
