As soon as I move out of Richmond it goes and becomes a foodie hub! Typical.  I wrote this for The Guardian about how Melbourne’s “Switzerland” suburb (it’s neutral territory for north and south) is having a moment. 

Richmond, the former centre of Melbourne’s rag trade, filled with old warehouses and tiny workers cottages, wasn’t always a dining destination. Good eating in Richmond tended to be thin on the ground with the exception of a few stalwarts like legendary gastro pub The Grand. But a swathe of new apartments, led by the redevelopment of the former Dimmey’s building, are bringing a new generation of diners to Richmond.
