It’s no secret that the places worth discovering in Melbourne are tucked away where you least expect to find them. And the newest kid on the block proving this theory is Mr Close.
Located in the Midtown Plaza, Mister Close is the dream of two schoolmates who met 28 years ago. Together, Chef Peter Knowles (ex Gertrude Street’s Arcadia) and front-of-house-charmer James English have created a space that looks as good as the tucker tastes.
Serving a seasonal menu that changes daily, specially roasted Campos coffee and a ‘lunch order’ service, Mister Close is one eatery you’ll want to get up close and personal with.
Oh…and if you’re wondering who Mister Close is, he isn’t the resident close talker. He’s the Year 8 Geography teacher Peter and James had in the year they met!
