Melbourne has embraced the humble picnic with a vengeance, making grassy patches of parkland the new dining destinations of choice. And this Saturday, October 23–Sunday, October 24, Vue de Monde will be following suit. The acclaimed fine diner is swapping its sleek 55th-floor Rialto Towers digs for the expanse of the Royal Botanic Gardens' Southern Cross Lawn for this pop-up weekend barbecue.

Along with his crew, Executive Chef Hugh Allen will be firing up the barbie to serve a special menu of top-shelf snacks and high-quality barbecue fare, including iconic creations like the crab sausages and the signature lamington-inspired dessert.

Joining in the al fresco fun will be Vue de Monde's sommelier team, with some top picks from the restaurant's 15,000-strong cellar selection in tow. They'll host a pop-up cellar door slinging a wide variety of drops, including a bunch of wines not normally available to the general public. Venue-exclusive wine The Forgotten Barrels is also set to make an appearance.

It all kicks on until 4pm each day, or until dishes and drinks sell out.
