Lume At Home
South Melbourne's fine diner is now creating fancy lockdown feasts, complete with sommelier-selected wine.
While its doors remain shut through another extended lockdown, celebrated South Melbourne restaurant Lume is helping to add some fine dining flair to your at-home routine. Famed for its innovative, seasonal fare, it's just launched a new ready-to-eat take-home menu on offer every Thursday through Sunday, for as long as the current lockdown continues.
Give yourself a break from the stuck-at-home rut by whipping out the good tablecloth and diving into clever dishes like house-baked sourdough with black artichoke butter, the wild venison short loin teamed with homegrown kimchi and thrice-cooked veggie chips, and a salted kelp caramel cheesecake.
Each multi-course shared feast for two comes in at $240, including a 200-millilitre pour of sommelier-selected wine from Lume's cellar. There's also a full plant-based set menu on offer, starring the likes of a whole-poached globe artichoke with desert lime mayo, and a roasted millet risotto finished with pumpkin and wild garlic. The same menus will run for the next few weeks, though with some small tweaks depending on what seasonal ingredients the kitchen gets their hands on.
Lume Take-Home is available for both click-and-collect and delivery each week — order here.
