Executive Chef John Churchill oversees the menu at the latest restaurant from the team behind Frogmore Creek Wines.
A great way to begin a meal at The Lounge is in, well, their lounge – an expansive space of spectacular lighting, comfy couches and chic music. Following on from a fancy cocktail and some starters, diners can then choose to move through to the more formal dining area, with dim lighting and velvet chairs. Located in the new and rather impressive MAC01 building, the entire restaurant looks over Hobart’s waterfront.
Fresh burrata with tomatoes and balsamic is a brilliant way to start dinner. The fun and accessible starters include tapas-style dishes like deep-fried fetta and sun-dried tomato wontons with a sweet and sour sauce. The delicately prepared yellowtail kingfish sashimi with baby beetroot and smoked yoghurt is a rather special dish. Larger bistro-style meals are also available and include chargrilled chicken breast and a crispy skin pork belly.
PSST! Many of the cocktails come served as rather indulgent desserts, for those that like their drinks to be made in collaboration with pastry chefs!
