Emerson Rodriguez is plating up all kinds of impressive, out-of-the-box dishes at Emersons Café and Restaurant, located at Adina Vineyards. If you're feeling indulgent, try the eight-course degustation menu with matching wines ($140pp) and savour dishes like a miso-cured Atlantic salmon with pickled cucumber, soy jelly, seaweed-dusted puffed rice and fresh horseradish cream. Dessert is the real star here, though – we're still daydreaming about our smashed lemon meringue pie with lemon curd, lemon sorbet, curd mess and limoncello liquor jelly. It's on the regular menu, too, so you have no excuse to pass it up.
