Fine dining is a style of eating that usually takes place in expensive restaurants where good food is served to discriminating people. But it is not always about eating out for dinner as is the common impression. Fine dining restaurants are also a beehive of activities at midday, pandering to the lunchtime crowd of fastidious diners with delightful and dedicated meal courses. This is true in Melbourne which abounds in restaurants that serve fine diners with an array of fine lunchtime menu.
