Melbourne’s eateries are the ‘soul’ and spirit of the city. Unfortunately, the industry association says 10 per cent of businesses in hospitality may have closed permanently due to COVID-19 crisis.

Restaurants were eager to open their doors to 50 diners, but the recent outbreaks mean that they’ll have to wait, however at Neos Kosmos we will continue to encourage people to support their eateries by taking away or reserving a seat. Send your restaurant listing to editor@neoskosmos.com.au

Here’s a list of businesses worth supporting.
