Sofitel Melbourne On Collins welcomes guests to ‘Lunch like Van Gogh’ at No.35 Restaurant. This one-of-a-kind experience allows guests to imagine themselves dining as Van Gogh did in the South of France, painting memorable masterpieces such as The Garden of Saint-Paul Hospital.

Inspired by the National Gallery of Victoria’s (NGV) newly opened Melbourne Winter Masterpeices exhibition, Van Gogh & The Seasons, Sofitel’s Executive Chef John Savage’s ‘Lunch like Van Gogh’ menu features classic French dishes, similar to what Vincent Van Gogh would have enjoyed in the late 1800’s, with a modern twist.

To get the creative juices flowing, guests are welcomed with a unique amuse-bouche consisting of tubes full of colourful sauces, paint brushes and freshly made bread for them to curate their own palate pleasing edible works-of-art.

Following this sensory experience, guests can select from two or three courses including notable French dishes such as salad Lyonnaise, Boeuf Bourguignon with braised beef, pomme purée, sautéed mushrooms and red wine sauce, and for the pièce de résistance, crème caramel with cognac soaked raisins.
