Melbourne's superstar and much-loved chef Guy Grossi has just announced plans for a brand new establishment in Kew, in partnership with hospitality group PUBLIC. Nestled in a prominent corner of Studley Park Road and High Street, Clifton Hotel will have space for over 250 patrons across five distinct indoor and outdoor spaces.

The multi-space venue will offer an assortment of dining experiences, led by Italian restaurant and apertivo bar Puttanesca. Antipasti, spaghetti alla puttanesca, Mamma's lasagne and puttanesca pizza is all teased to be on the menu.

"Our philosophy when creating this menu was to incorporate familiar favourites you would find at the centre of an Italian family dinner table, taking quality, wholesome ingredients and treating them with respect," Guy Grossi says. "We wanted to create a place to bring together the local community to stop by on a Sunday for a family lunch, or a quick bite to eat during the week."

Marc Murphy, former Carlton Football Club star turned project manager, will oversee the development of the historic hotel.
