Restaurant / Australia / HBA Melbourne / Completed in 2015
Estelle by Scott Picket, the famed Australian chef, is a 52-seat restaurant located next door to Pickett's current establishment, Estelle Bistro, situated in the expanding food/bar precinct of High Street, Northcote. The design reflects a vibrant and contemporary space that projects timelessness as it enhances the dining experience, while not detracting from culinary pleasures. The interiors act as a backdrop to the cuisine and the active show kitchen. The show kitchen sits at the heart of the action and bring the excitement and innovation out into the open as it is surrounded by bar stool dining on one side, allowing guests to visually experience their food. A viticultural wall displays the carefully chosen wine selection to complement the fine cuisines served.
