Broadsheet x Luci - Limited Edition Chef’s Selection Menu
Luci is the kind of old school, glamorous day-to-night venue that makes dining out feel like an event.
Featuring mainly Italian influences, Luci’s menu is demonstrably focused on Victorian farmers and producers. And being set in the grand hall of Equity Chambers, it’s also one of Melbourne’s most stylish new restaurants – an elegant building dating back to the 1930s, featuring contemporary double-height ceilings, refurbished oak panelling, and bespoke marble tables and flooring.
To celebrate Luci’s winter menu, Broadsheet has teamed up to offer readers a limited edition chef’s selection menu.
Created by Chef Sam Moore and the Luci team, the winter chef’s selection menu offers a sample of five new dishes. Showcasing Moore’s characteristic creativity and precision cooking, the tasting menu is designed to highlight seasonal ingredients and balance classic and modern sensibilities.
Beginning with house baked garlic and rosemary focaccia (drizzled with olive oil and vincotto) and a serve of Somerville heirloom beetroot, avocado and cashew ricotta. From there it’s Kurobuta pork jowl, cannellini beans and smoked ham hock; fregola, lobster emulsion with barbequed scallops; and dry aged Macedon duck breast, celeriac and radicchio.
Sides of heirloom carrot and witlof salad, feta and almonds round out the mains, before dessert arrives with citrus and almond cake with mandarin and salted ricotta.
The exclusive five-course dinner is priced at $120 per person and includes a welcome drink – a delicious Limoncello Spritz made with limoncello from Sardinia and topped off with local sparkling wine - on arrival. More details and book online.
