Shannon Bennett's new seafood restaurant Iki-Jime on Melbourne's Collins Street is branching out. It's putting seafood on the back-burner for three nights as it puts dessert front and centre.
The restaurant is hosting a series of dessert degustations, taking place on a Wednesday each month. On each night, four courses of dessert will be served up to the sweet-toothed guests sitting at Bar Jime (located just in front of the pastry chefs and bartenders at work).
While exactly what desserts you'll be eating will change each time, expect interactive and theatrical dishes — such as chocolate domes that melt in front of your eyes and plates that look like paintings.
Different cocktail pairings will be available each night, too, with the November degustation focusing on gin and the December one featuring spicy Christmassy spirits. The dessert degustation itself will set you back $55, with cocktail pairings an additional $30.
