Gordon Grill, looking much more contemporary than its 55-year-old history suggests, revisits the stalwart Surf & Turf dining experience for a limited time.
The four-course menu begins with well-executed chilled langoustine and prosciutto and a hearty chicken consommé, followed by three options each in the surf and turf categories. Hokkaido scallops, fish of the day or Maine lobster are simply grilled to showcase their freshness. The choice gets harder between Victoria Farm Australian lamb chops, free-range Ibérico pork collar and U.S. Snake River Farms Wagyu flat iron steak. The particular cut of beef ensures that it arrives tender, while the mild flavour of lamb will delight even picky eaters. The lighter than expected raspberry cheesecake with a berry compote brings it all to a satisfactory end. Till 14 October, weekday lunch ($68) and daily dinner ($88).
