Entrecôte Parisienne Steakhouse & Bar

The South Yarra restaurant formerly known as Lynch's (and, less memorably, The Millswyn and Louie) is set to become a French steakhouse. Serial restaurateur Jason Jones (Moor Please, Prix Fixe, Friends of Mine) has teamed up with Adam North of Hopkins River Beef to open Entrecôte Parisienne Steakhouse & Bar in early December.

The idea of Entrecôte arrived, fittingly enough, over dinner at Le Relais de Venise L'Entrecôte, the famed steak frites joint in Paris. Jones and North were (separately) holidaying in the city when they ran into each other and, inspired by their dinner, began talking about bringing a similar concept to Melbourne.

It'll be all about the (Hopkins River) beef. Diners will choose how their steaks are cooked, and will have few decisions to make after that. Steaks will be served with an anchovy, herb and mustard-based sauce, bottomless serves of French fries and a green salad.

"We'll have oysters and French onion soup if people want them," Jones says. "This is a French restaurant that does steak. It's very simple. Sweets will be classic French bistro fare like chocolate mousse and crème brûlée."

Entrecôte will serve breakfast from 7am to 1pm, offering "le petit déjeuner" - a baguette with French butter and jams, cheesy baked or hard-boiled eggs with caviar, pastries, orange juice, tea and coffee.

The French-themed makeover comes courtesy of interior designer David Flack, while Simon Moss (ex-Sapore) will run the kitchen, fresh from a recent trip to Paris for steak-frites inspiration.

Lynch's, of course, was infamous for its ban on children, something Jones reckons isn't going to be an issue at Entrecôte. "If a child wants to pay $39 for steak frites, we've got no problem with children," he says. "No problem at all."
