W Melbourne has revealed details of its signature restaurant, Lollo, ahead of its February 2021 opening.
The 110-seat restaurant will celebrate Melbourne’s multicultural heritage and amplify local ingredients with celebrated chef Adam D’Sylva at the helm.
Executive chef and co-owner of award-winning restaurants Tonka and Coda, D’Sylva’s mixed Indian and Italian heritage has given him a strong foundation in different flavour combinations that showcase fresh and local ingredients.
Working with the hotel’s executive chef, Jihun Kim, the pair will create a menu that draws inspiration from a variety of cuisines while highlighting local Australian produce.
Lollo’s drinks list will showcase the best of Victoria’s coveted wineries and breweries, paired with cocktail creations that play on the unexpected.
Lollo is one of four dining and bar outlets, joining a 30-seat Japanese restaurant Warabi, late-night bar Curious and Culprit, a café-meets-wine-bar experience.
Meeting and event spaces
Alongside the 294 guest rooms and four dining and bar venues, W Melbourne will offer eight event spaces, including a 426-square-metre pillarless space, the Great Room.
A four-by-five-metre LED wall has been installed at one end to deliver sound, light and elevated visuals, while a large original artwork by local Melbourne artist Ash Keating spans nearly 30 metres across the ceiling.
Outside the Great Room, the Studios comprise four separate spaces that are ideal for breakout areas.
