Vue de Monde
The views from the 55th floor of the Rialto Tower are stunning, as is Shannon Bennett's French-inspired cuisine. This is the location for celebrating, which is why guests leave their fate in the hands of the chefs, visible in a gleaming open kitchen, with the gastronomes (tasting) menu. Multiple courses of delicate dishes might include kangaroo, local lamb, or marron (crayfish), according to the season. The room itself is a design dream, with tables covered in stretched kangaroo leather, salt and pepper hidden in rough "rocks," and a light sculpture inspired by fireflies.
