Executive Chef Johnon MacDonald, who also oversees the food at AKIBA, entrusts Head Chef Thomas Heinrich with the day-to-day running of the Sage Dining Rooms kitchen. Located within the Gorman House Arts Centre, this is unquestionably one of the best dining experiences in Canberra. With its white tablecloths and comfortable chairs, the intimacy and warmth of the dining space sets the tone for a noteworthy meal.
The delectable dishes showcase well-sourced produce in a modern and meaningful way. Underpinned by superb techniques, mushroom agnolotti has a serious wow factor. The flawless pasta is served with shiitake broth, black pepper oil and nasturtium, and explodes on the palate with umami flavour. Yellowfin tuna has a distinctly Mediterranean feel thanks to the accompanying puffed wild rice, goat curd, mint and peas. This dish is well balanced and beautifully presented.
PSST! Mint Garden Bar is open during the warmer months, and offers a selection of classic cocktails, locally produced wines and boutique beers.
