The Chefs Table dinner is simply unbelievable; a food experience. Try the Grilled Nannygai with Basil Butter and Shellfish Broth. The nannygai is translucent. The buttery broth is truly magical with perfectly cooked mussels, baby octopi, clams and scallops. Every flavour is complementary and the broth of shellfish juice and stock is superb.
