She’s not what you expect her to be!
Not letting his Daughter In Law have all the fun, internationally acclaimed Chef-Restaurateur Jessi Singh (co-owner of Daughter In Law, Horn Please, Don’t Tell Aunty, Babu Ji NYC, Bibi Ji) is introducing Melburnians to another fabulous lady in his life: Mrs Singh. Mrs Singh is a vibrant wine bar and store sitting confidently among serious players on iconic Flinders Lane, ready for both a good time and a long time.
“Come have a bite, a meal or just a drink. Bring the party or spectate. Mrs Singh is playful and curious, eager to explore what will become of this day, in this space, with the particular group that will end up here,” says Singh.
Marbled blue floors, monochrome speckled terrazzo, gold accents and luminescent sherbet orange panelling comprise the palette of the 65-seater dining room, with velvet banquette, bar and table seating in a spectrum of brilliant hues. A Singh-gnature, ‘70s Bollywood classics are projected on the walls with party tunes forming a feel-good soundtrack.
Ready to service every indulgence, a roaming champagne trolley will satiate the ever-present desire to sip, along with vivacious, produce-inspired cocktails and a 300-strong wine list by award-winning Sommelier Dheeraj Bhatia (ex-est. restaurant). Beer and wine are also available for takeaway, and those picking up one for the road can make expert pour selections using the clever, colour-coded system.
From the kitchen, guests can anticipate a concise menu of small plates, with punchy Asian flavours and Indian flair. A novel concept for Singh, the wine bar format will show the evolution of his new Indian cuisine while offering tasting menu options for extended sittings.
