Executive Chef John Leverink also oversees the culinary direction of Pod Food in Pialligo. At The Boat House, he offers diners a variety of contemporary perspectives on the plate, while maintaining a focus on showcasing the best available produce. Recently renovated, The Boat House is stunningly set on the edge of Lake Burley Griffin. This provides a view that befits its fine dining aspirations and places it in prime position to host special functions.
The ambition underpinning the food style is clear to see in each dish. Cooked flawlessly, beef fillet and short rib highlights the protein to best effect. The meat is accompanied by kohlrabi, a mild Tasmanian wasabi and delicate avruga. Slow-cooked lamb rump and black garlic with mushroom and pine nut, daikon and forbidden rice is a noteworthy dish. The inspired combination of ingredients is harmonious.
