I remember seeing an article about Left Field on Broadsheet months ago. I was curious, as the tag line promised a delectably seductive new offering on Koornang Road; a road I venture on almost weekly for work. At the time, I had difficulty envisioning anything contemporary at this location, even wondering at times if perhaps the writer of the article had been mistaken about its site. But alas they were not as suddenly work began and I become fixated watching that iconic yet lifeless pink heritage building being transformed into something starkly striking. Seemingly I'd been eagerly anticipating its opening but in turn, so had the rest of Melbourne. For weeks I watched as hoards of people stood in lines that reached out the doors and onto the road itself. And to this day those lines are ridiculous still. I truthfully can not recall a singular day where I am yet to witnessed this business have a "slow" day.
