Vue de Monde

Vue de Monde

Level 55 Rialto, 525 Collins St Melbourne, VIC 3000

There are no other words to describe a dining experience at Vue de Monde except ‘pure perfection’. No less would be expected from the lauded Shannon Bennett, who is known for his passion for classical food made using only sustainable, local produce. Vue de Monde is certainly one of Melbourne’s proudest gems, and transcends the notion of simply food to become a true experience of senses.

From the moment we stepped out from the elevator and walked through the opulent wine cellar to the beautifully earthy and atmospheric restaurant, we were greeted with impeccable service. It was clear that everything from the décor to the view to the cutlery and, of course, the food were prepared with the utmost attention to detail.

The menu at Vue de Monde is a degustation of approximately 14 courses, ranging in price from $230-275. The menu can change from day to day, as well as seasonally depending on available produce, but the idea is the same – an amazing culinary experience of flavours and textures to be enjoyed over several hours.

K and I were very recently lucky enough to be invited to the newly opened Fancy Hanks in the city to celebrate the opening of the restaurant and get a taste of their great food. Boasting a menu centred on all-American BBQ and tender smoked meats, we were more than excited to see what Fancy Hanks had to offer.

The venue itself is large, spacious and bustling with activity. I was particularly impressed with our waitress, who was lovely and helped us to order a great selection of the restaurant’s most popular dishes.

Bawa

Bawa

248 Burwood Rd Hawthorn, VIC 3122

One of the things I look forward to most on weekends off is exploring my local cafés and restaurants. Even though I’ve eaten at so many, there’re always new places to discover and different food to try. I’d been eyeing photos of Bawa for quite a while and had been recommended to visit, so K and I finally found the time to make a stop for brunch.
