The Langham, Melbourne’s Acclaimed Melba Restaurant Looks after dads this father’s day

August 2016…
Father’s Day is quickly approaching. While Father’s Day does not garner the same attention as Mother’s Day, it’s still a day to be celebrated.

On Sunday 4 September many families will flock to Melba Restaurant to honour dads.

Any why not? Melba Restaurant has a proven track record for catering for even the fussiest eater or most discerning diner seeking a culinary delight or those on the lookout for an Instagram-worthy dessert. 

Melba Restaurant’s team of chefs have crafted a menu with dads in mind. The menu for lunch on Father’s Day features Jack Daniels BBQ ribs, Peri Peri roast chicken as well as everyone’s favourite fresh seafood including wok-fry scallops, Hervey Bay Champagne Lobster, blue swimmer crab, tiger prawns, oysters, Spring Bay mussels, tobiko caviar, smoked salmon and grilled Moreton Bay bugs.

For a dessert fit for a king, there is Guinness mousse, Mars Bar cupcakes, rocky road brownies and the ever popular sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce. 

For every dad attending Father’s Day lunch, they will receive a mini Langham-brand Sherrin football.

Families will be literally spoilt for choice. Will they opt for a seafood banquet starting with sushi, sashimi, or head straight for the perennial favourite,chicken tikka masala? Or maybe they’ll make a beeline for the charcoal grill and order a sirloin steak just the way they like it. 

Add in made-to-order naan bread filled with just about anything from spinach and cheese to M&Ms (no judgment), Asian dishes, Indian curries, ricotta and spinach ravioli, roast port plus a heavily laden antipasto station brimming with charcuterie, and more and you’ve got the beginning of a Father’s Day to cherish.

Families just have to remember to leave room for ice cream, the chocolate fountain and all of the desserts and local and imported cheeses.
