Bringing technical sophistication with a fusion twist to the traditions of Italian cuisine, the distinctive style of Head Chef Federico Zanellato has attracted a strong respect and following, both among his peers and with the wider dining public.
From the comfort of your table, highlighted by the multitude of small lights that inspired the restaurant’s name, watching the duty of care of the dishes being plated in the impressive, large, open kitchen is all part of the experience.
Starting with innovative snacks, such as zucchini pancake and kangaroo tart, is a rite of passage at LuMi Bar & Dining. Similarly, superb rye and spelt brioche is a prelude to vibrantly presented tomato and strawberry – a dish of well-judged counterpoints. Moreton Bay bug, beautifully showcased in a multilayered celebration of its flavour and texture, is a perfect segue into the signature agnolotti – a modern take on cacio e pepe. The gorgeous taglioni with mud crab is surpassed by sublime Patagonian toothfish, and duck with more-ish koshikari rice that wows.
PSST! LuMi is renowned for hosting collaboration dinners with like-minded chefs representing a diversity of styles and cuisines.
