The acclaimed David’s of Prahran, is open again with a completely new look and new menu. One might be forgiven for walking straight past the new David’s, as it is a completely different looking restaurant. The new David’s menu is defined as ‘country Shanghai comfort’ and presents robust, flavour-some dishes created for sharing, which are served with David’s relaxing or invigorating signature teas as well as extensive wine list.
The inspired contemporary interior reflects this new informal approach.
With a nod to the Chinese aesthetic, the new look David’s creates the feeling of walking into a contemporary warehouse or loft, but with dining nooks, rustic chairs and tables. Unique chinese paper lanterns (made in France) are festooned throughout the restaurant and details such as Chinese porcelain teapots filled with chopsticks and rustic stackable waiters stations add to the relaxed, modern mood.
“Hecker Guthrie’s design for the new David’s draws on the heritage of old Shanghai and Melbourne’s lively hospitality scene, and gives a new life to the warehouse architecture of the building,” says interior designer Hamish Guthrie. “We have brought a playful, fresh design to the established restaurant while reflecting the traditional honesty, simplicity and homeliness of the new menu on offer from David”.
The enthusiastic David Zhou is delighted with the new look David’s restaurant. He believes that the restaurant is in step with the preferred way of dining and imbibing, as people are eating out more often and are looking for quality, affordable and dependable locales with which to do so.
