Il Patio - Bourke Street’s new bar & Italian bistro ain’t your garden variety

A little excerpt from my latest on Agenda. Go check this place out and say hi to the lovely Sarah Clare.

Il Patio (that sounds much better, right?) is nestled at the back of Bourke Street’s Centre Courtyard, offering eclectic modern-Italian fare by Naples-born chef Francesco Armillis. In summer, you’ll wile away warm evenings dining al fresco, but while that chill lingers, surrealist touches like a Mediterranean vignette (with real vines) brings the outside in.
