The sea is the star attraction on this menu. For a state surrounded by water, Chef David Moyle plays homage to place by his choices. Rarefied abalone is roasted in a kelp blanket, $86. Grilled snapper is served with nettle sauce, $36. European wines dominate. Housed
in the Mercury newspaper’s former printing press floor, Franklin is terrazzo, polished cement and steel framed windows. They offer informal bar dining from 8am to late Mon-Sat.
Reservations are a must for dinner in their restaurant online only.

Self-professed modern Australian with Southern American influences, Frank plays hosts to asado and Latin flavours in MONA-esque architecture. It’s smoky, barbeque grill with the
piquancy of chipotle, peppers, onions; the sweetness of apples, pineapple and cucurbitas; and the sourness of limes. The white fish is to die for. They make a mean cocktail too. Hobart’s current ‘It Girl’.
Reservations are a must and by email only. Early walk-ins can work.
