Archer’s Docklands

MELBOURNE | Archer’s is the flagship restaurant of the newly opened Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands. It’s open both to guests of the hotel, and to the general public. It’s a classy space, with low lighting, a dark, grey and black colour scheme, and a feature curved ceiling to create an intimate space, inspired by the classy hotel dining rooms of 1960s New York.

Head chef Head Chef Alex Drobysz (Maze London, Lumiere Vancouver, Epocha) has put together a modern European menu that focuses on local produce and artisans. It’s open for a la carte breakfast, and a two or three course menu with several options, as well as a tasting menu, at dinner.

The menu features an assortment of seasonal dishes that make the most of the high quality produce being used. Dishes include things like Yarra Valley goats curd, heirloom vegetables, grapefruit, walnut, and salsa verde, Southern highland lamb rump with potato gratin, soubise, and piperade, and crispy cauliflower with chili emulsion, and agrumes.

Being seasonal, the menu at Archer’s changes regularly. If it’s on when you visit, I highly recommend the wagyu beef tartare served on puffed beef tendon crisps, and the tender duck breast and braised leg, served with seasonal vegetables. For dessert, try the intense yet light creme caramel.

The wine list features local and international drops, and a pairing option is available. There’s also craft beer, spirits, and an assortment of cocktails.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
