      Three best in bold:

      Longrain Melbourne: had lunch there last week. Amazing Thai food, just spectacular.
      Vue de Monde: the best in this list, but the bill will make you wished you ordered everyone a $100 steak at Rockpool.
      Ezard: nice, nothing special.
      PM24: sounds like a grade of dust particle.
      Il Solito Posto: lovely place, but possibly a bit noisy for a business lunch involving six people.
      Taxi Dining Room: one of Melbourne's finest. While Smarm may know that if you turn the chemical structure of lignocaine on it side, it looks like a man with a small erection, he knows nothing about restaurants.
      Punch Lane: again, nice for lunch with friends, but nothing special.

      You sir and are an idiot and a fool.

      The last time we gave taxi the benefit of the doubt, we went the degustation again. After informing the staff about a shell fish allergy (which was one small part of one dish), the staff assured us that it was fine.

      And it was. The didn't bring a dish out for me. They bought my wife the dish. They "forgot" to substitute something for me. So I had to watch my wife eat a course. Brilliant service chaps. Then proceeded to charge us the same amount! Amazingly incompetent. I don't know how they're still in business. Also, the food was medicore at best.

      Hey Costa, I understand Vue DeMonde is okay for seating these days.
      Should be free, but can't do too late. Still recovering from your last visit lol.

      Maybe we should go get Kenny and relive the fast and furious. I'm sure he's got his licence back by now.

      Been awhile guys but thought i'd suggest a place.

      Try Rococo on Acland Street St Kilda.

      Not that expensive and good food.

      Not to mention next door (95 Espresso Bar) make same good coffee also.

      7pm's fine with me. Might be just you, Lily, Harry and myself. Can you make it to Cafe Ghurkas on Chapel Street near the Intersection of High Street? I guess you'd call it Prahran.
