The team behind such Melbourne hospitality favourites Welcome to Thornbury, Belles Hot Chicken and Mr Burger clearly aren't afraid of a bit of hard work, having extended the family with the launch of their mammoth, food court-like, app-fuelled, new concept venue, Hightail.
Opening its doors within brand new dining precinct Collins Square, this is the 100 Burgers Group's grandest project to date. With a colourful, Technē-designed fit-out, this ambitious joint boasts room for more than 950 people. But it's the food and drink situation that's the real experiment, as the group debuts its new 100 Orders app, allowing punters to skip the queues and order everything straight to their table.
On offer are dishes from Mr Burger, Belles Hot Chicken and Super Taco, alongside a 48-strong beer selection, an Aussie-led wine list and signature cocktails — all en route (and paid for) with just a few taps of your finger. They also have big screens playing all the biggest sporting action, and some pretty tidy weekday happy hour deals to tempt the nearby knock-off crowd.
