Broadsheet’s most coveted competition – Seven Dinners in Seven Nights – is back.
We’re giving you and a friend the chance to dine at a different Melbourne restaurant every night for a week between October 3 and October 9. In the mix: some of the city’s best new restaurants and a couple of classics, curated by our editors. And you’ll be chauffeured to and from each location, courtesy of rideshare and taxi aggregator app Placie.
Enter the form below for your chance to win this huge week of dining and imbibing, worth more than $4000. And if you’re a Broadsheet Access member, you’ll have triple the chance to win*.
Monday: Tipo 00
Start your week at this perpetually popular Italian restaurant, located in the heart of the CBD. The star of the show will be butter-drenched pastas, including hand filled tortelli,
but there’ll also be a signature “tipomisu,” matched wines and more.
This lively Thai eatery opened earlier this year in a four-level, heritage-listed building (also home to Her Bar) on Lonsdale Street. You’ll be served a barbeque banquet – including a spicy ocean trout salad and a southern pork rib curry with krachai – and tropical cocktails.
Expect John Dory rillettes with witlof, charred baby octopus atop chickpeas, and a brown butter-baked hispi cabbage at one of Melbourne’s best wine bars. Each course will be paired with delicious local and international drops.
Thursday: Lillian Brasserie
Society’s European-inspired brasserie, Lillian is the perfect spot for long lunches, drinks or intimate dinners. The menu offers a contemporary spin on classics – such as scallops with labneh, oregano and sobrassada, and smoked, slow-roasted Margra lamb shoulder – plus opulent cocktails (the namesake Lillian is a signature) and a wine list drawing from Society’s 10,000-bottle cellar.
Friday: Al Dente
Experience a one-off Italian feast at Carlton’s swish fine diner. Start with cocktails and snacks before a pasta course of elegant paccheri with yellowfin tuna and ‘nduja, and casoncelli stuffed with veal, pear and pancetta. Then, generous mains and a milk and honey dessert.
Only a few months old, Moonhouse is the sleek new Chinese restaurant from the team behind Hanoi Hannah and Tokyo Tina. In an art deco former bank building, enjoy crispy Hainanese chicken club sandwiches, reimagined prawn toast, fiery noodle dishes, and plenty of booze.
Sunday: Lagoon Dining
Finish things off with spicy beef tartare, fried chicken “chop” doused in Bulldog sauce, and charcoal-roasted char siu at this modern Asian diner. For drinks, you might be served a bitter lemon curd and sake highball and niche wines from small producers.
