An Italian feast awaits this spring at Grand Hyatt Melbourne’s award-winning restaurant, Collins Kitchen, with Melbourne’s legendary pizza institution, Ladro, returning for a three-month residency.
Taking up residency until Thursday, 28 November 2019, the specially curated menu on offer is a creative collaboration between the Ladro and Collins Kitchen culinary teams and features authentic Italian cuisine made from the freshest locally sourced produce.
Along with the classic wood-fire pizza flavours that first put Ladro on the map, guests can also indulge in some authentic and moreish Italian dishes.
We loved the dish of pumpkin ravioli with burnt butter, made daily in-house. It was absolutely stunning. For something heartier the Wood-roasted spring chicken is like a hug from nonna. Full of flavour and served with rich napoli, garlic, olives and basil.
The Lamb tomahawk was similarly delicious. Cooked to absolute perfection and served with crushed green peas, fresh mint, goat’s curd and a slice of lemon.
A visit to “Ladro Checks In” would of course be incomplete without one of their amazing pizzas. We fell in love with the porcini e gorgonzola pizza . Wonderfully thin and light pizza base was slathered with Fior di latte, gorgonzola, porcini mushrooms, pangrattato, basil and parsley. Simply amazing!
Keeping true to its reputation for indulgent desserts, Collins Kitchen’s famous dessert station will also be turned into a decadent “La Gelateria” bar. Expect mouth-watering desserts including Sicilian cannoli, bomboloni Italian donuts, tiramisu and our personal favourite, Baked lemon ricotta cheese cake.
What: Ladro’s Return To Grand Hyatt Melbourne
When: 2 September - 28 November 2019; Lunch and dinner Monday-Friday; Dinner only Saturday - Sunday.
