Vegie Bar's grown-up, super stylish sister Transformer is making a name for itself as being one of the best fine dining vegetarian experiences available in Melbourne. Now they're taking things up an epic notch, with The Harvest dinners — evenings where chefs Luke Florence and Bryce Edwards serve up a specially-designed, seven-course, all-vegan tasting menu with matching vegan wines to impress.
For first-timers to Transformer, expect a visual experience as well as a culinary one, with lush green vines wrapped around cages intersecting the walls and video art projected on the screens, cocktails of kombucha and beetroot with gin and mismatched cutlery like your granny might own. It's a little bit fancy, but with a quirky edge.
Expect to take your tastebuds on a very pleasing, cruelty-free journey that is sure to impress even the meat-eaters among us. Say what you like about veganism — it still can be delicious.
