Scott Pickett’s top five
places to dine in Northcote
Where does one of Northcote’s hottest chefs go out for a meal? You’d think Scott Pickett would look further afield after a long shift behind the stoves, but when Estelle‘s part-owner knocks off he prefers to stay local with his family.
Scott (formerly at Albert Park’s two-hatted The Point) and fellow chef Ryan Flaherty (who cooked at the acclaimed el Bulli n Spain, along with Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck in London) have a loyal and growing fan base at their High St diner.
But Scott can’t always eat at the “office”, despite the tasty food. These are his top five places in Northcote.
1. Cafe Bedda
242 High St, Northcote, 9482 9420
81 High St, Northcote, 9939 4762
3. Northcote Social Club
301 High St, Northcote, 9489 3917
4. Pizza Mien Liebe
5. Two by Two
A soon-to-be opened cafe/restaurant four doors up from our restaurant. I’m looking forward to having somewhere close for breakfast and that early morning coffee!
