Essence on Exhibition
Time Out says
Get three square meals a day at the Marriott
Melbourne isn’t short of restaurants offering lunch and dinner, or cafés doing breakfast and lunch – but breakfast, lunch and dinner? Now that’s just a little bit rarer. But if you so wish you can get all three of your daily meals at Essence on Exhibition.
Located at the Melbourne Marriott, Essence on Exhibition sits somewhere between casual dining and something more formal. Breakfast gives you the choice of à la carte or buffet: live dangerously and get the three-egg designer omelette. With its lunch and dinner menus Essence does an admirable job of working native Australian ingredients into dishes, with Alpine pepper spiced calamari, Gippsland beef tenderloin with quandong butter and gum leaf panna cotta.
Penny pinchers head in to Essence on Fridays for their $20 lunch buffet featuring salads and pasta as well as beef, chicken and lamb dishes, and cakes and fresh fruit. Or for something dainty and refined book in for Essence’s three plates high afternoon tea.
