From an elevated 11-course spin on KFC and Disney degustations to nostalgia-driven menus themed around great British memories, Surry Hills fine-diner NEL continues to push the boundaries of creativity and invention with its contemporary takes on any theme it sets its attention toward.

The restaurant's Executive Chef and Owner Nelly Robinson is leading the charge on these inventive degustations, assisted by a team of chefs with expert craftsmanship and a knack for inventing. Each time you venture to the Wentworth Avenue venue, you can expect something different — and something exceptional.

When you opt to dine in this time, however, you'll have the chance to experience a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the creative process with the return of the NEL test kitchen. The limited lunch series will pop back up on Saturday, September 30th, offering an exclusive sneak peek into the inner workings of the venue's creation process.

NEL's test kitchen will return for a single instalment, offering a nine-course set menu of seasonally-inspired dishes dedicated to "all things spring". The acclaimed restaurant's chefs will build new, exciting dishes, some of which may feature on NEL's future menu — and you'll be among the first to trial them.

On this particular journey, you'll be met with a stunning kaleidoscope of colour paired with flavours that'll lead you on a sensory exploration of the season. Keep up to date with the event's details at NEL's official website.
