Luxembourg brings a dash of much-needed chic to St Kilda's Fitzroy Street. It's there in the essentials - fine oysters with all the trappings and a hessian sack of sensational sourdough. There's style, too, in croquettes stuffed with pork confit, or mock vol-au-vents fashioned from crisp potato skins filled with whipped cod roe and Avruga. Admire the long marble bar, the handsome antlers jutting from a wall, and smartly attired staff as you pore over an intriguing, French-accented wine list that unites classic producers and new-wave offerings. Expect the odd surprise from chef Chris Watson - heady smoked egg anchoring an otherwise proper Lyonnaise salad, for example - but his roasted chicken, steak au poivre and whole flounder à la meunière are all classics in the genre. All very slick, but never stuffy; the nightly cinq à sept happy hour offers half-price oysters, and on Tuesdays you can BYO a bottle from home.
