Friday dinner at Esposito on Elgin

A Best Restaurants voucher for a Christmas present, an upcoming holiday for my parents, and a general family catch up were responsible for us booking dinner with Father Noel at Esposito. Elgin street in Carlton has consistently provided us with a great offering of restaurants to share a meal & good conversation. I was actually surprised I had not visited this Melbourne institution before having been operating for nearly two decades. With friendly staff & a fresh interior, we made our way through an array of tasty dishes including oysters, scallops, John Dory fillets and my fave, the crab omelette. The mains initially looked a little on the small side however I was glad when my Spaghettini “Of the Sea” arrived. It was a generous serve of perfectly cooked pasta overflowing with mussels, prawns, scallops, calamari, oysters and fish (I had quickly checked out the other tables in the restaurant when I first sat down – looked like this was a popular option!). With no room for dessert (my eyes were too big for my tummy!), I had a flat white to end the night x
