Taxi Kitchen has undergone an impressive transformation from formal Taxi Dining Room to more casual Taxi Kitchen. The World Loves Melbourne considers Taxi Kitchen to be a standout foodie experience in Melbourne. There was nothing wrong with the previous Taxi Dining Room experience; it's been top notch forever. But the move to a more casual and chic reinvention is a masterstroke. Out goes the carpet and candles, and in comes ultra modern lighting, cool flooring, and a more spacious restaurant. Even the wait staff outfits are super chic.

Written by David Hagger.

Smith and Daughters has an amazing feel to it; a Latin American restaurant on Brunswick St that is the result of a dream of two zany and extrovert ladies, award winning chef Shannon Martinez (ex Gasometer, The Sweetwater Inn and South), and Mo Wyse (ex Manager at The People's Market), bringing her design and business savvy expertise. Smith and Daughters promises much if the recent launch is anything to go by. The World Loves Melbourne was invited seemingly along with half the hipsters of Brunswick.
