With talented Executive Chef Justin James and Head Chef Chris Marshall at the helm, Shannon Bennett’s flagship restaurant, Vue du monde, continues to make great strides forward in contemporary cuisine. Located on Level 55 of the Rialto Tower, Vue du monde has spectacular views over Melbourne both day and night. With a dark decor and dim lighting, the mood is sensual and sophisticated.
The Chef’s Tasting Menu is complex, but the chefs still ensure that the amazing produce is the hero of each dish. David Blackmore Wagyu uses seaweed and nasturtium to highlight the quality and flavour of the beef, while Western Australian marron with pine mushrooms and macadamia marries the freshness of the seafood with the earthiness of the mushrooms. Kohlrabi with Yarra Valley salmon roe and marron coral is simply divine. The crunch of the vegetable is beautifully complemented by the gelatinous roe.
PSST! Vue de monde boasts one of Australia’s best-stocked cellars. The sommelier can recommend a wine to match each dish.
