Here are a few of my favourite gastronomic experiences in Melbourne:
One of the great things about being a concierge is the relationships that we build with these restaurants. Guests who stay with me not only get to benefit from my many years of experience with the restaurant scene in Melbourne but also benefit from the wonderful relationships that I build with these restaurants. Concierges are often able to get the best tables at times when restaurants are fully booked. We can even pull off a miracle or two on occasion!
I hope you will join me at the InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto so that I can assist you to enjoy the culinary scene in Melbourne. It is simply delicious!
