Do you have a birthday, an anniversary or another milestone? Vue de Monde has launched its At Home menu with a delivery radius of 15 kilometers from this week. The six-course menu featuring Vue de Monde classics and recent additions has “special occasion” written all over it.
Order no later than 17.00 every Thursday for a weekend delivery of hardened kingfisher with wasabi and avocado, marron curry with watt seed damper and Blackmore Wagyu with miso spinach and celeriac truffle gratin. Then there is dessert: local cheeses, the famous chocolate souffle and the best lamington you have ever tasted (the recipe for which is shown in Broadsheet‘s new cookbook, Homemade). It’s all $ 275 and feeds two people.
Vue’s sommeliers have also come up with a bunch of optional wine pairings, which complement bottled cocktails from the adjoining Lui Bar. Go ahead, do the special occasion really particular.
Poor Counter. The great bar and restaurant in Brunswick East, from longtime publicist Melanie Aldred, opened just a few weeks before Melbourne was thrown back into the lockdown. It continues to struggle with a takeaway gastropub menu with some thriving Middle Eastern and South American.
Recently, Teller launched a fish’n’chip menu Friday and Saturday night, which extends beyond what your average corner store is frying up. In addition to the expected battered flag and grilled calamari, there are freshly shot Coffin Bay oysters with chardonnay vinaigrette, bowls with crispy white bait and school prawns and homemade potato cakes with malt vinegar mayo.
The venue also taps its own signature cocktails home and pours craft beer into 750 milliliters of longnecks and growlers to go. It’s Friday night sorted.
This bistro and bar in the Mediterranean area of South Yarra is also fairly new in the city. It offers elegant six-course parties for two, consisting of three main courses, one main course, one side and one dessert. The dishes are ready to use but require a few finishing touches.
This week, $ 150 brings you entrees of hardened sea trout with smoked salmon roe, poached Catalan seafood with canned ginger and Padron peppers and Fremantle squid, baked potato and chorizo oil. Main is slowly cooked Angus short ribs and mushrooms with a salad of radicchio, persimmon, chervil and parmesan. Dessert is a vicious trifle with dark chocolate mousse, blood orange caramel and hazelnut cake.
Matched drinks are available for an additional $ 40, $ 50 or $ 70, depending on how far you want to push the boat out. Order no later than 16.00 for next day delivery.
In neighboring Armadale, a lighted corner café has launched its first night menu, including takeaway cocktails. And it’s filled with the kind of comfort food we love to eat on the couch after a hard week. There’s a fried chicken burrito, a hearty pork and veal ragu, fried gnocchi with spinach and pepita pesto, haloumi nuggets and a cheeseburger with caramelized onions. Some of Mammoth’s daytime classics are also on guard: poke bowl, Saigon noodle bowl, falafel bowl and fried-chicken burger. Finally, there are desserts: chocolate mousse, Eton root or pecan pie with Chantilly cream.
Meat Frankie x 400 Gradi
In 2019, Brunswick East pizzeria 400 Gradi entered the Guinness Book of Records by squeezing 154 different types of cheese on a single pizza. It was ridiculous back then (how would you even taste all the types?), And it’s even more ridiculous now that Gradi has teamed up with neighbor-burger joint Meat Frankie to create a 155cheese double cheeseburger. (The 155th cheese is the burger’s neon-orange American cheese.)
Isn’t that the kind of news we all need right now to ease the boiler of lockdown? Yes? Then go to Meat Frankie from dinner on Saturday, September 18th with only $ 20 and an empty stomach. Each burger includes two steaks and unlimited servings of lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, jalapenos and grilled mushrooms.
