Once Upon a Time: Chapter Three
Visit Nel for a 11-course Disney-themed degustation featuring meals inspired by 'Monsters Inc', 'Winnie the Pooh' and 'The Lion King'.
Fine dining institution Nel restaurant is bringing a whole new world of nostalgia to Sydney, with the return of its Once Upon a Time degustation. The Disney-themed feast was first created by Executive Chef Nelly Robinson — and the third iteration is it's most fanciful yet.
Available from Tuesday, June 29 to Saturday, October 9, the 11-course menu features the Hundred Acre Wood — a honey-glazed confit pork belly with a Winnie the Pooh twist; and Boos Best Friend — a white chocolate and mint parfait that folds in elements of Monster Inc protagonists Mike and Sully. Drifting away from the animated classics, the Dead Man's Chest serves up red squid marinated in spiced beetroot juice paired with a black garlic emulsion.
And if all that isn't enough, you can also opt for a drinks package, which includes paired cocktails and wines for $105. Though the menu is inspired by your childhood, you'll need that adult salary to enjoy it, with food setting you back $145 per person.
The Once Upon a Time menu is available for dinner Tuesday–Saturday and for lunch on Saturday.
