If you’re visiting Melbourne, you’ll see Butchers Grill advertised in almost every tourist guide and I can’t see why not. The beautiful interiors, vibrant wallpaper and grand chandeliers create an elegant European yet cosy dining atmosphere. The menu was so amazing that I have to admit, I may have over-ordered just a teeny bit for dinner between the boy and I.
Complimentary bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar!
Char-grilled baby octopus with tomato, fennel and feta pasta ($17.00)
Seared scallops with vegetable cream and pork crisps ($18.00)
Snicla – pork fillet filled with smoked ham and cheese served with spring onion and potato salad ($31.00)
Grilled lamb loin with pea puree, salted grapes and flamed capsicum ($38.00)
Bombe Alaska -28 degree vanilla ice cream with warm chocolate center and flamed meringue ($15.00)
The Food Zoo experience: My favourite dish was the feta salad and the Bombe Alaska (which took a while to choose from the amazing mouthwatering dessert menu!). Was a bit disappointed with the scallops which were slightly overcooked but don’t think this would deter me from coming back next time!
