With serious Miami Beach vibes and aesthetics, Bayside eatery Lenny 3206 is a beaut of a space where colourful interiors and stylish furnishings complement one another in a building that resembles the numerous Art Deco hotels and restaurants of the Magic City’s South Beach; in particular its buzzing and iconic Ocean Drive.
The younger sibling of Arndale’s Moby 3143—an Instagrammable destination café that honours both great food and design—Lenny 3206 is located in an attractive heritage corner shop in Melbourne‘s Albert Park and packs an equally strong punch in the style stakes as its forbearer; from the punchy branding and choice of natural materials to its inviting pastel-accented façade and cute outdoor terrace.
Reflecting “the interiors of the breezy brunch bar”, executive chef Stephen Svensen devised a menu full of light refreshing dishes, breakfast including the Lenny bircher or smashed avocado and chilli scrambled eggs; the lunchtime menu consisting of treats like superfood salad, Lenny fish burger and chicken katsu, each plate created with care and served as Instagram-ready as the surrounds.
Adding to the waterside vibe, a recently-acquired alcohol license means diners can now enjoy a crisp wine or Aperol Spritz with their order—raising a glass to great design, great food, great company and great times. Lenny, we heart you.
