When you order the garlic bread at Gauge, you don't receive a toasted piece of white, crusty loaf slathered with golden butter. Instead, the bread is black, and the butter brown and speckled with burnt vanilla. That's how they experiment every day of the week, on their standard menu. Imagine what they could come up with if they really wanted to push the boundaries.
Actually, don't just imagine. Rather, show up monthly and eat the results. The South Bank restaurant is launching Gauge X, their new, regular, experimental dinner series. It's designed to challenge the way the eatery thinks about food, and increase their creativity — and you get to enjoy five courses of the results.
The first dinner takes place on September 20, then monthly from then onwards, with the second session arriving on October 18. Tickets cost $75 per person for what promises a meal like no other — even if you go back each and every time. And if you have a dietary requirement, just make sure you let them know well in advance.
