The Lûmé Takeover
The enigmatic team from two-chef hat restaurant Lûmé, will be taking over the Milk the Cow kitchen this February with their own distinctive brand of dining.
Artfully deceptive, Lûmé takes a thoughtful and considered approach to dining, creating experiences best enjoyed by curious minds. With a deep respect for produce and technique, Lûmé’s team share an unrelenting desire to experiment. They honour tradition, yet at the same time are hell-bent on building their own.
Head Chef Shaun Quade and his team will be set free in our 5-metre cheese cabinet to select their favourite morsels to create a four course cheese-inspired menu. Don’t miss this one-off experience at our Carlton fromagerie. Four cheese-inspired courses from the minds at Lûmé, paired perfectly with boutique beverages.
