Hilton Melbourne South Wharf has officially unveiled its new restaurant and bar, Dock 37 Bar and Kitchen.
Architecture firm Noel Robinson Architects (NRA) has redesigned the 150-seat dining space to embrace its riverside setting and complement the sea meets land concept. The room now has warm timber walls, a suspended wine gantry in black steel, high ceilings, and full length windows overlooking the South Wharf promenade.
Executive chef Glenn Wright’s new menu features 270 day grain fed Black Angus rump, 24-hour pork scotch fillet, whole baby barramundi and New Zealand king salmon served with a choice of house made sauces. Several dishes give a nod to Glenn’s New Zealand heritage, like the ‘Kiwi’ Mess with manuka honey, kiwifruit sorbet, hokey pokey and a feijoa crisp, with some dishes featuring fresh produce from his garden on the hotel rooftop.
Dock 37 Bar and Kitchen has a long bar with pull-up seating, communal tables and cosy couches to enjoy. The area is complete with a short and tailored menu full of bar-food classics available late into the night. A comprehensive selection of drinks are also offered from well-known classics to a tempting selection of custom-created cocktails, wine housed in the suspended gantry above the bar and dozens of beers on tap.
Dock 37 Bar and Kitchen is open daily from 3pm till late and is located at Hilton South Wharf, Melbourne, alongside the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
