Café Vue At Heide:

At the opening of Café Vue at the Heide Modern Museum of Art in Melbourne, Minister of for the Arts, Lynne Kosky, pronounced chef/owner Shannon Bennett an “artist in the true sense of the word”. Kosky may well have been referring to Bennett’s best known work of art Vue de Monde, the café’s fine dining namesake, but the fact she was delivering her oration at Heide gave the observation extra pathos. That’s right, one of Melbourne’s finest chefs has struck up an alliance with the Modern Museum.
