The Moldy Fig
a slice of New Orleans in Melbourne
Open Tuesday to Saturday 5pm till late
'The Moldy Fig' in the heart of Brunswick's dining district is a restaurant bar bringing New Orlean's Style to Melbourne run by chef owner Dorelle and her daughter Vivian.
In the 1920's new age jazz came to New Orleans and some of the great jazz players thought the original improv jazz would be lost and forgotten. They formed The New Orleans Jazz Association and when playing together called themselves The Figs. Of course they were seen as old, dusty and boring and gained themselves the nickname - The Moldy Figs
Originally an insult the term 'moldy fig' has now been embraced by traditional jazz players and fans and resonated with Dorelle and Vivian as they aspire to bring the tradition of New Orleans to Melbourne
