“When we opened here in Lorn, it was important for it not to be the same at Muse Kitchen in the Hunter Valley. Still the same standards, still the same quality, still the same Muse Kitchen experience but we just wanted to give people an opportunity at an approachable price point. Lorn was crying out for this kind of space; just something really beautiful and elegant,” Josh shared.

The petite French bistro boasts an incredibly relaxed atmosphere and is perfect for a slow weekend start, long lunch, or the occasional wine dinner. The interiors, designed down to the finest detail by Megan herself, reflects all the very best of Paris.

“We really wanted to hit those streets of Paris, bistro, people walking down the streets kind of vibe. That’s part of the reason the design of the place is so attractive.”.
