UPDATE: In May 2019, Thomas Pirker was appointed as Head Chef at Grain of the Silos.
Having both relocated from the mainland, high-profile Food Director Massimo Mele allows experienced Head Chef Peter Twitchett the luxury of showcasing the very best of Tasmanian seasonal produce at Grain of the Silos.
Located in the spectacular and recently completed Peppers Silo Hotel, no expense has been spared in ensuring the restaurant matches the unique luxury accommodation that is offered, with the best purpose-built dining space in Launceston.
When the menu pays special tribute to all of its artisan producers with a full page, the potential for a great experience looms large. Stunningly fresh grilled octopus, served with salsa verde, potato foam and fried capers, delivers on that promise with a dish that celebrates the joy of simplicity through the pure clarity of the elements on the plate. Similarly, the sublime fried gnocchi, with impossibly tender slow-cooked wagyu beef and pork belly ragu, onions, parmesan and crispy fried sage, leaves you in a dreamy state of culinary bliss.
PSST! Enjoy a pre-dinner signature cocktail at Woody’s Barrel Bar, which is housed in the base of a silo.
