Scorpi is a hidden gem. The food is genuine and delicious, with plenty of choices. The waiters are friendly. They have an excellent wine list too.

hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
find little independent shops where local clothes and
furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
