    Exciting Times at Ellen Street

    After many events, birthdays, weddings and countless hundreds of happy diners the Ellen Street Restaurant is undergoing some exciting changes. Along with some planned renovations we are also welcoming a new team to continue the exceptional food and service we’ve enjoyed over the last few years. We are sad to see chef Tom move on and wish him all the best in his future endeavours. But with change brings new opportunities and enthusiasm.

    With many years experience cooking in fine dining restaurants in Germany and Norway including Michelin Star restaurant Oro by Terje Ness, we are excited to announce our new head chef is Fabian Lehmann. Fabian has a great passion for fine food and a broad level of experience after twelve years of working across the world in all different styles of restaurants.

    “My Idea for Ellen Street is to design a unique and exciting menu that changes regularly so that our guests can come back and experience the same quality with different flavours. My aim is to work mostly with local and fresh products and try to make the most of all of the great things the surrounding land has to offer.”

     Heading up the front of house team is Kit Hamence who has come across from the Star of Greece Restaurant. The team hit the ground running with two sold out Lime Cave events as part of Tasting Australia and now set their focus on the five course degustation for our VIP ticket holders for the James Morrison concert on June 11th. The restaurant will continue to open for lunch from Thursday to Monday, offering visitors a choice from a fine dining experience or a food and wine tasting flight.
