Relaxed and approachable, Speakeasy impresses with a delicious menu that spans a wide range of world-inspired dishes.
The moody colour scheme and lighting accented by a chic design creates a relaxed ambience that is perfect for socialising.
A nod to the speakeasy America’s prohibition era culture of illegal drinking dens, Speakeasy celebrates the art of imbibing in good vibes and good food with a good drink in hand. In line with Speakeasy’s social setting, the menu items are designed primarily for sharing.
To start, we loved the SFC: Speakeasy Fried Chicken. Wonderfully crispy on the outside and moist on the inside, these babies when beautifully with the chilli mayo.
For mains we fell in love with the Gisborne duck breast. The slices of duck breast were cooked to a rarely found perfection, allowing the rich flavour of the duck to shine through. The accompanying honey glazed persimmon, fried spuds, baby mushrooms, radish and pistachio were delicious with together with the sour plum sauce which provided the crowning element to a luxurious dish.
For something heartier, we recommend the 12 hour slow cooked lamb served with refreshing tahini yoghurt, picked onions, beetroot, lettuce and grilled flat bread. Just yum!
To conclude your evening on a sweet note, the Speakeasy serves a range of delightful desserts. Think Chocolate fondant with toasted peanut, salted caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream as well as a cheeky Gen Y Rhubarb tart served with meringue, grapefruit curd and fairy floss.
Located in the heart of South Yarra, Speakeasy certainly entices with a menu of dishes that are bold and diverse, alongside an excellent cocktail list.
