Autumn Eats To Fall For

A Taste of Autumn 2017 in the City
1 April, 2017

Celebrate the beginning of autumn with these new dishes that have just landed in the heart of the city. We've rounded up some of the best to explore this season. 


Legendary Executive Chef Gareth Stewart has welcomed in new autumn flavours at Euro. "We are featuring warmer comforts such as brussel sprouts and bacon pairing with free range chicken; and the Hawkes Bay lamb rump and belly, with a green harissa and burnt carrots." For the ultimate comfort food, top your meal off with a ricotta cheesecake, or a roasted banana gelato stick (with rum...) from the dessert menu. 

Cafe Hanoi

If you like street-inspired Vietnamese food, here's a new one to try at Cafe Hanoi. Originating from the streets of South Vietnam, Bun Bo Xao is a refreshing rice noodle salad with wok-seared lemongrass beef, pickled vegetables, peanuts and lots of herbs. 

The Botanist

Brunch at The Botanist is just as stunning as its flower arrangements. After spending years living in London and Melbourne, two the world's most experiential food hubs, Chef Ryan Pearce is pushing the boundaries of your standard brunch menu with new creative sweet treats like Coconut Panna Cotta with roasted fruit, oat and coconut crumble, mango, and for savoury lovers Kahawai cakes with braised cabbage, anchovy gremolata and a soft boiled egg. 


Head Chef Andy Graham's recent travels around the globe is the inspiration behind some of the new dishes at Oaken. Must-trys include the Pumpkin Gnocchi with a German twist of crumbled pumpernickel and black garlic on the dinner menu, or a remake of their best-selling Sticky Pork Belly Salad with crispy black rice and local guava on the lunch menu that will leave you dreaming of the Caribbean...​

The Sugar Club 

Fancy a mini degustation? Experience a wider range of flavours than you normally would in one meal with the new á la carte lunch at The Sugar Club, available from Wednesday to Sunday 12pm-2.30pm. Exquisite items on the menu by Peter Gordon include the Hiramaska Kingfish and the Strawberry Yuzu Meringue.  We recommend that you select three or four small savoury dishes and, a delicious dessert to round off. Bookings are essential. 

Gusto at the Grand

For a finer, faster lunch with your friends or colleagues, head over to Gusto to experience their delicious express shared lunch. What better way to kick of Autumn than with some grilled snapper, zucchini flowers, peas, beef cheeks gremolata, or some garlic, rosemary pizzetta?
