It turned out that Rosie was making a sort of joke, as her approach to grief counselling was based entirely on the administration of alcohol.
We went to Jimmy Watson’s on Lygon Street, a short walk away, and as usual, even on a weekend, it was full of academics.
Jimmy Watson’s is only a stone’s throw from the University of Melbourne and nestled in the Little Italy cultural precinct on Lygon Street. By the time we got there, it was already packed but the exterior was so pretty I didn’t mind. My next trip to Melbourne will definitely include a better-timed visit so I can sample the menu. You can check out the website here.
