Mother’s Day is just around the corner so if you haven’t booked a restaurant to take her we’ve rounded up our favourite places for you.
Saké Restaurant & Bar
This Mother’s Day will be a lavish one at Kew’s favourite Italian dining destination, Mister Bianco, where chef Joseph Vargetto will be spoiling all mums, not only with a decadent feast of food and wine, but also with a thoughtfully put together gift including aromatic t2 tea and L’Occitane hand cream. Mum can sit back and indulge in a shared three or four-course Sicilian feast, beginning with a selection of struzzichini such as natural oysters with blood orange granita and Mister Bianco’s signature arancini of saffron, pea and veal with a ragu centre.
Guests will then enjoy a shared pasta and main dish, followed by a tantalizing selection of desserts, such as the famous tiramisu ‘della nonna’, served out of a giant copper pan, as well as cannoli and sweet brioche buns with gelati and sorbets.
$75 for three courses, $85 for four courses, including a Mother’s Day gift pack. $38 for children.
