Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of making an acquaintance with Lady Grange at its official launch event.
While you should never ask a lady her age, Lady Grange only a few weeks old. Located in the hub of the Esplanade, Lady Grange is a new restaurant featuring a modern Australian menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We were welcomed by owner, Jay, and his father, and were offered to try out one of their cocktails, a Zombie, which was made from their Tiki style bar. Upstairs is the function area, which has impressive views to Port Phillip Bay.
Downstairs is the main restaurant area, where the piece de resistance for the night was the ice sculpture which had many fresh, sweet oysters awaiting us.
The bar downstairs
Throughout the night, we had the opportunity to try many of the drinks and dishes on offer at Lady Grange, including...
...mini hot dogs...
...a range of wood-fired pizzas, which included chicken, fig and rocket...
...Middle-eastern style lamb pizza. Both pizzas had the thinnest, fluffiest base and a nice amount of toppings on top.
...these amazingly creamy and perfectly salty crispbreads w seafood, pansy and roe...
...these moreish seared tuna w mayo and sesame seeds on a crispy cracker.
There were also other dishes, including, the freshest sushi and duck rice paper rolls.

*Scores are notional as we were guests of Lady Grange and this was a launch event.
The food is very fresh and Jay told me that, wherever possible, they only use local suppliers and produce. Next time you’re in St Kilda, go meet Lady Grange and see what she has on offer for you.
