While being a world away, the influence of Heston Blumenthal and his Group’s Chef Director Ashley Palmer-Watts is ever-present at Melbourne’s Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, ensuring local diners get an experience akin to the duo being there.
This is one of the major dining rooms in Victoria, perfect for any special occasion that deserves a top-end dining experience delivered with impressive style and absolute professionalism.
The historical and technical concepts behind many dishes on the menu remain unchanged; however, seasonal variations keep it fresh for return diners. Frumenty (a dish that dates back to medieval times) is reinvented with lightly grilled octopus, spelt as the foundation, with a leek and chervil emulsion and divine smoked sea broth that delivers lovely aromatics as it hits the table. The slow-cooked pork belly, intentionally served without crackling, relies on the more-ish green pea pudding, pickled onions, subtle black pudding, and bacon and mint oil to deliver the cohesion and wow factor.
PSST! Seating six, the chef’s table is available for those wanting to elevate their experience to the next level!
