Teage Ezard has long been one of Melbourne’s talented chefs, who takes a ‘steady as you go’ approach to enterprise, and he has carefully built a great business, attracting a regular stream of diners. Head Chef Jarrod Di Blasi has been with EZARD for six years, stamping his own style on the menu.
Located on Flinders Lane, well-known as a culinary hub, EZARD is one of the ‘original’ restaurants to still remain. A stylish fit-out, moody lighting and smartly dressed tables signal a class act, while exceptional service and knowledge from the front of house team combine to create an intimate experience.
At EZARD, the focus is on texture and flavour in every dish. For a flavoursome starter, try the juicy pork belly served with caramelised pineapple, Bull-Dog sauce, five spice and greens. Perhaps follow with the Ora salmon, a beautiful dish that delivers an amazing taste combination, and features braised daikon, shiitake, citrus kosho dashi, ink cracker and purslane. The components are ideally balanced, while the salmon retains its status as ‘hero’ of the dish.
PSST! The set-price lunches are great value and a real hit with the locals – best to make a reservation!
