Angus & Bon
168 Greville Street, Prahran VIC
Channeling New York hospitality establishments espousing casual grandeur, stylish steak house and brunch hot spot, Angus & Bon prepares to open in a fiery blaze, late 2017 on Greville Street, Prahran.
Angus & Bon is anchored with two restaurant stalwarts at the helm, Liam Ganley and Declan Carroll. Liam Ganley landed in Melbourne following the European economic downturn and with his building and design background and his fiancée Margaret Lawless’ hospitality background on hand; the team then proceeded to open Lemon Middle and Orange and then The Fifth Province and Freddie Wimpoles.
Executive Chef Declan Carroll is a passionate devotee of wood fired cooking and has been a Sous Chef at Rockpool for 4 years. Previous to this, his resume included conspicuous stints at Bistro Guillaume and the Press Club.
Together, Declan and Liam have designed a menu that is low on pretension and big on freshness and flavour. The bar and restaurant, each with their own menus will showcase the wood grill flavours, whether it is seared into an asparagus, fish or steak.
Graze and fossick from shared plates and entrées such as a classic ham plate with premium jamon sarrono, prosciutto and sopressa, or choose to nibble on a pork croquette perhaps or confit lamb ribs. With various menu items vegetarian and pescartarian friendly.
For the protein lovers, select your preferred specialty cut, rib eye on the bone (aged 30 days) to scotch fillet (30 days) to grass fed, or a selection of locally butchered dry aged, grass fed 36-month-old prime cuts. Finish it all off with a fancy sauce, Bernaise, Pepper, Beef, Garlic and Café de Paris. Finally, accessorise with some sexy sides, onion rings, mac and cheese, fries, red and white cabbage coleslaw, then lean back and settle in for a session.
Carroll says “The Angus & Bon menu has been inspired by working at Rockpool and cooking over wood grill for years. I want people to enjoy the food, feel fulfilled and be inspired to go home and put the BBQ on and just cook.”
BERGMAN & CO CLUBHOUSE
With a clubhouse look and feel designed by restaurant interior designer du jour, Wendy Bergman of Bergman & Co along with a stellar team including Interior Designer, Ineke Hutter and Architect, Jack Monte, Angus & Bon will become a home away from home. Housed in the old Prahran Post Office built in 1928, Angus & Bon features bespoke, ambient lighting by Please Please Please and will have two distinct areas (bar and restaurant) including an exterior zone on Greville Street for the summer months. Greville Street has recently undergone a facelift by Stonnington Council, with extended outdoor dining and beautiful new landscaping on show. The front bar beckons to relax and revive whilst the seductive banquettes and booths in the restaurant will ensure the most pleasurable wine, dining and imbibing sessions.
“Being a steak house we wanted to incorporate some of the elements seen in historical, traditional butchers. Bespoke round timber turned planters and crafted New York marble reminiscent of old butchers blocks, as well as glass display case joinery at the entrance,” Wendy Bergman.
