Discover the Dining Scene in Melbourne’s CBD

The epicentre of Melbourne’s food scene is undoubtedly the central business district (CBD), and no one knows it better than its chefs. Natasha Burnett, Good Food Guide hat winner and head chef at Marion, takes Culture Trip through her favourite restaurants in Melbourne’s most diverse, dynamic neighbourhood for all things culinary and delicious.

Chef Natasha Burnett has always loved food. From a young age, she helped her mother and aunts in the kitchen, quickly discovering it was where she was meant to be. As an adult, she was attracted to Melbourne’s diverse and dynamic restaurant scene and made her move to the city from her hometown of Noosa in 2012.

Burnett landed her first job at Stokehouse in St Kilda, before becoming sous chef at Pei Modern. In 2017, she was named chef de partie at Marion, one of Melbourne’s premier wine bars and part of Andrew McConnell’s Trader House restaurant group. She earned her place as the head chef within an impressive 18 months.

The year 2019 saw Burnett earn a hat from the Good Food Guide (one of the only female chefs in Australia to do so), along with winning a 30 Under 30 Food Service Award. It is without a doubt that she knows a thing or two about where to get the best food in the city. Culture Trip speaks to the celebrated young chef to learn about her picks for the best places to eat in Melbourne’s CBD.
