Ascend to the rooftop of Rydges Southbank to experience haute cuisine at its finest. Chef Massimo Speroni has created a culinary tapestry of emu, kangaroo, shark and quail, among a selection of premium meats and seafood. Furthermore, experiencing the imagination of his dishes stretches the bounds of expectation with innovations like the famed mojito sphere and martini jelly. Seven years on, and there is no end in sight to fine dining with the continual gasps of surprise this venue serves up.
Bacchus Head Chef Massimo Speroni has welcomed Autumn with a new standout dish headlining the a la carte menu, called, quite simply, Crocodile.
Chef Speroni joined Bacchus direct from the 2-Michelin starred Ristorante San Domenico over two years ago, bringing with him an extraordinary cache of experience, having worked under owner-chef Valentino Marcattilii. Through Speroni’s flavour-lens, the menu features fresh, classically created dishes. Entering Bacchus is a special moment – the rich chestnut interior throws hues of deep mahogany, tobacco and marble, creating a welcome that is only heightened by Restaurant Manager Kevin Puglisevich, who is seamless in his command of the space. The wine list of more than 600 offerings celebrates the great grape growing regions of the world and is curated by Sommelier Andrew Giblin, himself an almanac of stories of ancient vineyards and colourful winemakers.
