While Melbourne’s Pure South Dining is undergoing an extensive transformation, its owners have decided to open a temporary test kitchen upstairs.
Located on the Upper Level of the Southgate complex in the space formerly occupied by Walter’s Wine Bar, the test kitchen – named 7000 by Pure South Dining – will provide diners with a taste of what’s to come.
Executive chef David Hall and his team will continue to use produce from Tasmania, maintaining its commitment to sustainable and ethically sourced ingredients.
“We wanted to provide a space for David and his team to test menu dishes and develop further relationships with our suppliers, some of whom have been with us from the beginning. This allows the team to create and transform, and it seemed very selfish not to let the public experience what our reimagined space might taste like. We are asking guests to tell us what they like, to let us know what they are in the mood for,” said owner Philip Kennedy.
7000 by Pure South Dining will be open for lunch Wednesday to Friday and dinner from Tuesday to Saturday. The first seating will be on 7 June.
