If your kind of heaven features soft, pillowy lobster rolls and floating clouds of peanut butter parfait, then you'll be happy to know that Andrew McConnell's long-awaited Supernormal (aka the only version of the afterlife we want to know about) delivers both these things — and more.
After the success of the restaurant's three month-long Fitzroy pop-up, Supernormal has a brand new Flinders Lane site. A follow-up to McConnell's Golden Fields, which recently closed up shop in St Kilda to make way for the CBD venture, Supernormal will see a whole new McConnell-esque modern Asian fusion menu while keeping a few cult Golden Fields dishes (PB parfait included, phew). And you can expect to be chowing down on all the important (and on-trend) food groups, including pork belly, kimchi and steaming bowls of ramen.
Supernormal makes it restaurant number five for McConnell, who already operates Cumulus Inc., Cutler & Co., The Builders Arms Hotel and Luxembourg. Located in the dining epicentre of Flinders Lane, the restaurant is decidedly more fun (and a little cheeky) with the use of super kawaii Pacman-like figures in their branding and the inclusion of karaoke — I repeat, karaoke — in their private dining room. Lobster rolls with a rendition of 'Wannabe'? Yes please.
