Belle - - Belle Pro­mo­tion - WILD­FLOWER HONEY VINAI­GRETTE

“The set­ting gives the am­bi­ence, but the tan­gi­ble el­e­ments that ev­ery­one is touch­ing, they are the things that peo­ple re­mem­ber,” ex­plains Caro­line. The con­cept be­hind the global menu, which has been in­flu­enced by sev­eral cuisines, stems from a “dawn to dusk” ap­proach that Ramzey has de­signed to be com­mu­nal and ac­ces­si­ble, ap­peal­ing to all tastes and oc­ca­sions. “The idea was to make the food re­ally so­cial, you can come here and have a meal but you’re also able to have a meet­ing,” she says.

A tea lady wan­ders through­out the space with a cus­tom-made trol­ley adorned with a choice of pas­tries and cakes, and a res­i­dent shoeshiner is on hand while cus­tomers wait for take­away food or a ta­ble in­side. These el­e­ments have been in­cor­po­rated into The Grounds of the City in an ef­fort to al­low din­ers to in­ter­act more closely with the brand, or as Ramzey says to “cre­ate that so­cial change in Syd­ney and bring back that con­nec­tion”.
