Omnia, meaning ‘all things’ in Latin, will open as a pop-up concept at 25 Toorak Road, South Yarra on June 7th 2019. This elegant neighbourhood bistro is the first glimpse of what's to come from the LK Hospitality team.
LK Hospitality will open Omnia with Group Advisory Chef, Stephen Nairn, heading up the kitchen. Sourcing the very best seasonal ingredients from local producers and growers, Stephen will spend his days in the Omnia kitchen with his team of chefs. There, he will create and develop dishes for various restaurant and lifestyle concepts soon to take up residence at Capitol Grand. The world-class luxury residential development is located within walking distance of Omnia, on the corner of Chapel Street and Toorak Road in South Yarra.
By night, from Tuesdays to Saturdays, the Omnia pop-up Bistro & Bar will open from 5.30pm until late. The kitchen will deliver a European brasserie-style menu, using the incredible quality ingredients sourced by Stephen and his team. Stephen’s classical approach to cooking will result in a bistro menu punctuated by familiar, comforting dishes made from seasonal local produce at peak readiness.
With a CV committed to excellence and mastery of his craft, Stephen’s career spans local and international establishments, from Eleven Madison Park in New York City to Vue de Monde in Melbourne. His knowledge, experience and skill will add an exciting new energy to Melbourne’s vibrant dining scene through Omnia and subsequent Capitol Grand venues.
Even as a temporary pop-up, much consideration has been directed beyond Omnia’s food offering to its design and operations. Solid wood tables, a marble bar, handmade ceramic plateware by Andre Davidoff and a semi-open kitchen all offer insight into LK Hospitality’s approach to customer experience.
A light-filled rear courtyard bar will serve food and cocktails, developed in collaboration with Orlando Marzo (World Class Global Bartender 2018) and local hospitality experts, Worksmith. The Omnia Bar will offer a full menu to accompany expertly crafted cocktails and a thoughtfully designed wine list. The bar is accessed via a private walkway that joins the garden room to the bistro.
The hospitality offering at Omnia is approached with the same original thinking and consideration as the rest of the Capitol Grand development. Customer experience and exemplary service will play an especially significant part in Omnia’s identity and will ultimately guide all hospitality venues within Capitol Grand. Underpinned by recognition and respect, the exceptional service at Omnia will elevate the customer journey, where guests are welcomed, remembered and valued.
