Are you ready for some fresh flavours? Former Embla chef James Kelly has just returned to Australia following four years at Lyle's in London, a frequent flyer in the World's 50 Best Restaurants lists. His menu takeover at Osteria Ilaria will be his first in Melbourne following a series of pop-ups in London and Bangkok. Expect the work of small Victorian farmers, producers and fisheries to come to the fore in a highly seasonal and entirely delicious six-course menu.
