Quirky bar and eating house Francie May’s has swung open its doors in New Farm, treating diners to a mix of Asian tiger mother tradition and fine Pan Asian dining.

With an upstairs nook-filled dining area and downstairs eating house, Newton takes diners’ tastebuds on a tour of Asia with a fusion of cuisines from south-east, north and west Asia using locally sourced ingredients and served on Francie May’s own vintage plates. Francie May’s is a walk-in establishment and takes reservations for lunch and for groups of six or more.

Francie May’s, 720 Brunswick Street, New Farm.
