The opening of a new Chris Lucas restaurant is always an event on the Melbourne hospitality calendar so it was a thrill for KDPO to help launch his latest venture, the very glamorous Grill Americano in Melbourne’s CBD.
An opulent take on northern Italian grill restaurants that champion old school hospitality and brilliant produce, Grill Americano displays a thrilling attention to detail, from the white monogrammed jackets of the superb waitstaff to the best steak and seafood Australia has to offer plus superb handmade pasta and perhaps the finest tiramisu in the country, all against a luxurious backdrop of glossy terrazzo, royal blue upholstery, white marble and undeniable buzz.
We were on hand to help organise briefing sessions with the media, co-ordinate photoshoots and facilitate Broadsheet’s influential First Look feature. It was exhilarating to see Grill Americano quickly cement itself as one of Melbourne’s best and most popular new restaurants with bookings through the roof and a tsunami of attention across major publications including Gourmet Traveller, Delicious, The Age Good Food, Herald Sun, Urban List, Concrete Playground and Qantas Mag.
