Nineteen at The Star Chef’s Showcase

A sensory overload, the feast starts with signature oysters paired with a glass of Dominique Portet Brut Rosé, before a first course with a choice of heirloom tomato and nectarine salad, beef tartare, southern calamari or pumpkin risotto. Mains include john dory, roasted ocean trout or a grain-fed scotch fillet while sweet tooths will savour the coconut and mango panna cotta with smoked macadamia ice cream or chocolate meringue pie.
