MELBOURNE | Pascale Bar & Grill aims to take the hotel restaurant scene to a new level with their creative interpretation of traditional French cuisine, influenced by a multicultural fusion of flavours and local Australian produce. Located inside stylish QT Melbourne, this boutique hotel venue simultaneously boasts extravagance and quirkiness through its design. A proven formula for many internationally renowned hotel brands, their need to stay relevant requires their adaptability to offer exciting dining, drinking and retail destinations to attract both hotel and non-hotel guests alike.

Pascale Bar & Grill’s entrance into Melbourne’s constantly evolving dining scene is spear headed by Executive Chef, Andy Harmer. His extensive experience involves working in some of the world’s best restaurants, in addition to Melbourne’s own Vue de Monde and The Point Albert Park. Passionate about environmental sustainability and organic produce, his strong belief in the paddock-to-plate philosophy is brought to life through the Pascale kitchen team’s access to the rooftop kitchen garden at QT Melbourne, whereby locally grown produce is plucked, prepared and placed on the dishes arriving at customers’ tables.

Breaking the mould of most hotel restaurants, Pascale Bar & Grill offers a breakfast menu that steers away from buffet, and offers a selection of classic Melbourne brunch dishes that are familiar to today’s trendy eateries around town. Items like Smashed Avo, Eggs Benedict and the Farmhouse Benedict entice those seeking a taste of Melbourne, whilst Five Senses and Single Origin barista-made coffee demonstrate why people rave about Melbourne coffee.

Moving onto lunch and dinner, the menu remains the same across both service times, with a purposeful emphasis on bold flavours, locally sourced proteins, and rich creams and sauces. Menu categories divide options into Raw Seafood, Entrée, Grill, Rotisserie & Josper Oven, Sides, Sweets and Cheese. There is certainly something to suit most people’s tastes, however it may be useful to note that vegetarians are limited to three entrees and one main dish when it comes to savoury options.

The Miso Eggplant is one such vegetarian-friendly dish, which follows the menu’s consistent elemental composition of a hero protein, textural accompaniments and a cream or sauce. The Rotisserie Blackmore Brisket arrives with similar constituents, with both main dishes nailing their respective flavour profiles, though the cooking of the miso eggplant could have delivered a softer texture in the centre than the quite-firm texture we experienced.

The sides could steal the limelight in their own right, however the entrée serve home made Truffle and Mushroom Linguine is faultlessly executed, with perfectly balanced earthy and rich flavours coating the string-like, al dente-cooked linguine, taking you back to a nostalgic childhood innocence.

All in all, this modern European bistro slash fine dining restaurant presents a unique concept within the hotel dining industry, with an air of chic sophistication ingrained into its vibrantly modern design and ambience. The quality of the food and drink offerings match the experience standard that they aim to provide customers, with dishes that impress both a corporate crowd and an adventurous traveler. However, outside of the hotel dining industry, the high price points and refined quality of their dishes questions the novelty of their concept, particularly when compared with fellow fine dining European-style venues in Melbourne.
