Giro D'Italia Restaurant Superb Melbourne Dining on St Kilda Rd

Giro D'Italia is a popular Italian restaurant serving standout regional dishes, and has made waves since its relocation to St Kilda Rd just out of the Melbourne CBD. A point of difference is that Dom is not only owner and chef, but also hosts guests spending generous amounts of time on the floor. We have follwed the journey of Giro D'Italia from day one and it's an experience to visit, rather than just to grab some food and drink.

Golden Lamb Chops Star in new Gaylord Indian Menu

Gaylord Indian Restaurant housed in the iconic Grand Hotel in Spencer St (cnr Flinders St) has launched a new menu with Golden Lamb Chops being a star dish, featuring tender lamb cutlets marinated in house spices and grilled in the tandoor. You can eat like a king, as historically this dish was served to kings in Central India. The Mughals would be proud.

A generous amount of edible gold leaf on the chops makes this a dish of distinction and amazing value. I can't also but help think of the restaurant being located in an iconic building in a city founded on the back of the gold rush. Apart from a nod to historical regional Indian cooking, could this also be a nod to the hotel's late 19th century Gold Rush Era heritage? Hopefully we will see a gold rush of sorts in 2021 as Melbourne recovers from a difficult 2020.
