Posto Pubblico

Elgin Street’s favourite Italian-American restaurant, Posto Pubblico is ten this month! To celebrate turning a decade old, the much-loved restaurant is doing what it does best and putting on a memorable six-course spread. Priced at $819 per person, the dinner is taking place on Thursday, 14 November, and features a range of all-star Posto favourite dishes. Guests can tuck into the likes of veal meatballs and homemade burrata to start, followed up by plates of truffle cacio e pepe, chicken parmigiana and more – including a dessert of “diner cake” and vanilla ice cream.

Lunch and Brunch Specials

FRANCIS

We’ve been fans of FRANCIS since it opened its doors back at the beginning of 2018, and its newly revamped brunch is sure to impress. Known for serving up contemporary Middle-Eastern dishes, with the bold flavours of the region, the new brunch focuses around the much-loved dish of Shakshuka. Priced at $280 per person, FRANCIS’ brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm to 3pm, and includes a selection of four meze for sharing, a choice of main and dessert. When it comes to the mains, the classic Israeli dish of Shakshuka ticks all the boxes. Served three ways, guests can opt for the classic rendition of the dish, or try out one of Chef Asher’s new creations. The green variation features creamy yogurt, rich feta and zingy silverbeet; while the spicy shakshuka is taken up a notch with the addition of lamb kafta and fermented chilli. Meze dishes include the restaurant’s famed hummus, spiced beef cigars, and halloumi with honey and wild oregano.

Statement

Since launching earlier this year, Statement’s Britannia Brunch has drawn in the crowds for its elevated take on the classic Sunday roast. Adding to the likes of roast British beef, roast free-range Wiltshire guinea fowl and salt-baked fish, the restaurant has now added an Impossible™ beef, spinach and mushroom Wellington to its weekend lineup. Sure to please both veggies and meat-eaters, the new plant-based offering can be enjoyed with sides of King Edward roast potatoes and steamed broccoli with almonds. The brunch is priced at $628 per person, including a range of starters, desserts and free-flow Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut Champagne, house wines, classic Pimm’s, bloody Marys and espresso martinis.
