Melbourne Cup Day: the only day of the year it is universally acceptable to attend a function, and not return to the office in the afternoon. Flemington is too far so forget trackside, in Perth all the frivolity and style is off-track and “on high” this year at Western Australia’s only revolving restaurant, C Restaurant.
Set the tone for the day with champagne on arrival before indulging with a delectable two-part amuse bouche, with guest to select from some of C Restaurant’s finest fare over three, lavish courses featuring the finest in seasonal produce.
C’s famous homemade gnocchi, or red wine poached fois gras and ham hock with caramelized pear, hazelnut croquant and brioche to start; Pitch Black Angus beef tenderloin, or Cone Bay barramundi with Jersualem Artichokes greens, pickled beet and puffed black rice for main to caramel and sated chocolate mousse with hazelnut sponge, pear and Frangelico sorbet; this is just a sample, as guests will be truly spoiled for choice.
Provided you’re not distracted by our sweeping vistas, enjoy all the traditional race day festivities including sweepstakes and “Best Dressed”, and most importantly prime viewing position for the race that stops the nation.
Tickets are $95.00 per person and bookings are essential, or risk disappointment.
