Bellbird Dining + Bar Launches Weekend Brunch Menu!
Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre’s in-house dining destination Bellbird Dining + Bar has launched a brand new weekend menu crafted from their signature farm-to-table approach, with elevated takes on old favourites sitting alongside contemporary culinary creations.
With the recently-completed al fresco dining area, Casula Powerhouse is the perfect weekend destination to experience cutting-edge food, arts and culture. Sydneysiders can catch up over brunch with loved ones while enjoying the breeze on the banks of the Georges River, with a jam-packed feast of thought-provoking exhibitions, theatre and music awaiting inside.
In true Bellbird fashion, the seasonal brunch menu is an ever-evolving showcase of contemporary classics with hyperlocal produce. So you can expect only the freshest seasonal ingredients with those poached eggs - whether they’re with salmon rillettes, charred asparagus and sourdough; topping Tasmanian smoked salmon, charred corn, and radish; or with confit field mushrooms, prosciutto and rye.
Those with a sweet tooth can hoe into the likes of indulgent French toast, with brown sugar, Baileys, and Kahlua served with blueberries and double Cream; and there’s always plenty for vegetarians to love too, like a creamy free range mushroom omelette with shaved zucchini and pickled fennel, or a stunning haute cuisine-inspired falafel and roasted cauliflower, with yogurt and pickled onions.
“It’s finally here! Book your friends and family in for a languorously long brunch, and of course don’t forget to pop inside and catch a bit of culture afterward,” said CPAC Director, Craig Donarski. “Due to popular demand, we’ve expanded capacity and opened up a funky new outdoor awning area offering the perfect al fresco experience – plenty of natural light, and open enough to feel that awesome riverside breeze, plus inbuilt heating to keep you cozy in the winter months.”
“It’s been a huge first year for Bellbird, and so it’s only fitting that to celebrate our first birthday, we’re shaking things up with a new menu, mind-blowing new flavours and a fantastic new area for people to come together, and eat some ridiculously good food,” he said.
“High-quality, seasonal produce makes all the difference between a good brunch dish and an incredible one, where you can truly taste every flavour and texture, from the ooze of a freshly poached egg to the distinct crunch of asparagus,” said Bellbird Head Chef Federico Rekowski. “We can’t wait for everyone to try the new menu, served with excellent coffee by Melbourne bean specialists DC Roasters.”
Lovingly tended to by full-time gardener Lauren Booth, the Kitchen Garden provides a whopping 60% of produce to the kitchen. The Garden’s rotating roster includes a wide variety of organically-grown seasonal crops, from tomatoes and carrots, to zucchinis, beetroot, lettuce, shallots and beans.
