The government announcements seem to change faster than we can refresh these days and, yet again, Melbourne is still in lockdown. This means the closure is many restaurants and bars across the city are still closed. Despite cases going down and the situation contained, the toughest stage 4 lockdown is due to continue until September 13. However, takeaway and delivery are still available. Here, we’ve listed the must-try restaurants in Melbourne’s Northern suburbs that have the tastiest takeout.
As the guidelines do change from time to time, make sure to check online to see if each outlet is still offering takeout and keep up with how they’re doing.
