December 01, 2012 Restaurant Review: The Deanery December 01, 2012/ GG Location: 13 Bligh Place, Melbourne Phone: 03 9629 5599 Link: thedeanery.com.au Cuisine: Modern Australian Overall Impression: 7/10 With an extensive wine list that you can be assured has been cellared appropriately, The Deanery has quite the reputation as a wine bar. Jamon Serrano House made pork & chicken sausage, apple risotto The food served is also of a very good standard. Chargrilled octopus, calamari, saffron potato, chorizo Half roast duck, baked potato, burnt orange sauce With Robin Wickens (Interlude) as head chef, the menu features well-executed Modern Australian fare. Passionfruit Bombe Alaska Keeping with the wine-theme, the dining room feels like an old cellar – dimly lit, wooden furniture and exposed bulb lamps. The Deanery is an all-rounder, boasting both a solid wine and food menu which also happens to be very well priced. The service is equally as impressive. The staff are helpful and knowledgeable.
