Restaurant Visit: Circa, the Prince in Australia

January 26, 2011

Owners John and Lisa van Haandel, in collaboration with local designers, artists, and stylists, recently overhauled the interiors of St. Kilda dining institution Circa, the Prince (located in the Prince Hotel), creating a moody, mod ambience. The new interiors feature a working kitchen garden, split across two levels and designed by Joost Bakker. In the main dining room, Bakker stacked metal plant boxes to create what he calls vertically tiered "library shelves" of organic heirlooms. Upstairs, running the length of The Prince Deck, is the main kitchen garden. To read more about the interior design, go to Total Venue.
