Lunch at Committee Room by Grossi at the MCG
Partnering with Guy Grossi, Committee Room by Grossi is a new initiative by MCG’s recently appointed hospitality partner Delaware North. Is Committee Room by Grossi Melbourne’s best kept secret? For the first time, non-Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC ) members are able to enjoy this inner sanctum experience at the MCG, and at the same time, a magnificent Melbourne culinary experience by Guy Grossi.
Market oysters served natural with fennel pinzimonio dressing.
Cured kingfish pizzaiola.
Every dish was magnificent and resonated with Grossi flair and flawless execution. All paired with premium wines including a fabulous Reserve Italian Sangiovese.
Corporates of Melbourne (and others) have this unique opportunity of fine dining with a great view of the MCG. Not only that, but you can take advantage of parking underneath the MCG.
Reserve Italian Sangiovese was the perfect pairing.
After dining at the MCG (and MCC) many times over the years and experiencing the best culinary experiences it has to offer, Committee Room by Grossi brings a new level of elevated dining.
For me it was like dining at a Grossi restaurant. The Front of House Mark was with Grossi for 10 years and head chef was also trained at Grossi.
One of the best dining experiences I’ve had for the year hands down.
You can expect to eat in a fully a la carte restaurant, from Tuesday to Friday, we serve lunch from 12pm. And you don’t need to be a member – get online and book in for a table with your business colleagues or friends.
Says Guy Grossi, “It’s a fantastic setting with the backdrop being the beautiful, hallowed ground of the MCG. A couple of my favourite things on the menu are the Tortellini with pear, and just a hint of duck jus through it – and it came from an accident really. We had some left-over roast duck one day and decided to create a pasta dish out of it – and it’s been a staple ever since. It’s like eating roast duck dinner, but in beautiful tortellini – a pasta parcel – what a great package! "
