MAZE Grill’s seasonal menu is the work of a seasoned chef with three decades worth of experience.
Head chef Manuel Vitoros arrived at Maze Grill in January with his abundance of experience.
Having worked as an executive chef at Criniti’s as well as the Sheraton Hotel, it did not come as a surprise when the offerings did not look or taste like your ordinary club fare.
Featuring modern Australian dishes with a Mediterranean twist, the menu has received nothing but positive feedback.
“This is a collation of my 30 years’ experience,” Mr Vitoros said.
“When we go out to the suppliers we make sure that we’re getting the freshest products and create in-season dishes based on the most fresh produce.
“So if seafood is fresh for the day then I’ll have marinara on the menu.”
Mr Vitoros also noted he has enjoyed evolving the Maze Grill menu.
“I wouldn’t call it a challenge, I’d call it an adventure,” he said.
As well as the traditional staples is the 12-hour slow cooked lamb shoulder which falls off the bone with roasted chat potatoes and seasonal vegetables with lemon and jus.
The slow roasted pork belly with roast potatoes, seasonal greens and red wine jus is also a must.
The quinoa salad was the perfect accompaniment to the meals, boasting flavour from the roasted baby beets, butternut pumpkin, feta, quinoa and rocket leaves.
Those craving the classic pub food are well catered for with the chicken schnitzel on offer along with the option of four toppings, including the parmigiana and Hawaiian.
A range of burgers and pastas are also available as well as the traditional steak, fries and salad.
“We’ve added to the regulars and the favourites on the menu to keep people interested and the daily specials are also there for the regular members who want to try something different,” Mr Vitoros said.
“The specials are not on the menu but they’re the chef taking advantage of the produce and the suppliers that we have.”
In a stylish setting, Maze Grill dining offers the perfect ambience to catch up with friends while enjoying a great meal.
