When Matt Dempsey, from Inverleigh’s Gladioli, and Graham Jefferies, from Melbourne’s Wildflower restaurant, decided to move into the heart of Geelong’s blossoming food scene on Pakington Street, the name Tulip was an easy choice. “Flowers just seem to work for us,” Dempsey points out. The space, designed by Melbourne architect Adam Kane, has followed suit. Light and airy, fresh and fragrant, the minute you step foot inside Tulip you know you’re in for a treat. It’s share food with an experimental edge and the experience of the chefs shines through in its delicate presentation.
