During September, Sake is embracing a month-long sakura (cherry blossom) festival. Expect to find sakura-inspired cocktails, decorations and cherry blossom festival dishes that utilise Japanese spring flavours. They’ll be offering everything from Cherry Blossom Bento ($45) lunches to Sakura saké flights to a signature cocktail, the Sakura Royale.
Also in the ArgyleXchange complex, The Cut Bar & Grill has just announced Grant Croft as their new Head Chef. Grant comes from popular Bowral fine diner, Biota Dining. His new menu will be introduced over coming weeks, but I’m told it includes a modern take on the Cherry Ripe.
