Dinner by Heston Blumenthal 

Crown Towers Melbourne, 130/8 Whiteman St, Southbank VIC 3006, Australia

dinner3 years ago, it was an electrifying birthday lunch at the original Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in Londonand this time round, the restaurant is revisited for the same occasion, however, at its second outlet in the Southern Hemisphere, Melbourne.

Sat comfortably, overlooking the skyline of melbourne through the 2 storey-high glass facade, that lies adjacent to the buzzing “open” kitchen, yet still able to enjoy the serenity of the packed restaurant, this was I thought pretty world class.
