Di Casa Cafe Bar Restaurant
Dion Li Rosi started his apprenticeship at Va Tutto Restaurant in Ivanhoe at the tender age of 16ish, after growing up in an environment where food, friends and family were paramount, it seemed natural to take a position in cookery. His love of food and tradition provided the passion needed to work up the ranks in the kitchen and improve his technique and knowledge. With itchy feet, he parted ways with Va Tutto and accepted a role at De Bortoli Wineries to complete his apprenticeship and increase his product knowledge. The completion of his apprenticeship saw him once again climb the ladder of hierarchy for a further 3 years until the thirst for knowledge had him take a break from cooking to up skill with a nutrition course at ACNT, which provided some of the most sensitive dietary information that is integral within the industry. Being away from the pans was harder than expected, so the next step was to re-enter the industry, but concentrate on different cuisine. Classically Italian trained, Dion took a job at Two Beans and a Farm, where the menu was heavily Spanish/French. Within the walls of this 150 Year old Homestead, a bond was concreted with the manager, Tro Jerijian, who he brought with him to DiCasa Restaurant. At DiCasa, we are heavily produce and service driven, sourcing the best products from local businesses and processing from scratch to create the best possible European cuisine. Using old school family recipes from the old country while incorporating the world’s best produce, Dion is able to represent his cultural background. We go to great lengths chasing producers and cutting out the middlemen, to reduce food miles as we often buy straight from the source. Whether you are a romantic table of 2 or a group booking of 60, the emphasis is to cater each situation to the needs of your guests. This incorporates all dietary requirements, children meals, disabled access, music, lighting and décor.
Blue Tongue Wine Bar
Blue Tongue Wine Bar is the newest addition to the Elwood dining and bar landscape. The Menu is meat-driven thanks to a custom-built charcoal grill. Steaks, from eye fillet to chateaubriand, are the star of the show, and there's a short selection of house-made pasta – think ravioli filled with snapper and prawns in tomato and chilli oil. The smart-casual space that leans towards the dinner-date crowd earlier in the week and a party crowd at weekends.
My Son, Joy
My Son, Joy is built from the hearts of founders Neale White & Annabel McKay. It all started with wanting to create a healthier life style, with the daylight dining and no more late nights at work. Sharing food, creating memories, raising a glass in celebration. Hospitality & honesty. DAYLIGHT DINING Local hospitality professionals Neale White and Annabel McKay have opened the doors to their new health-focused venture, My Son, Joy. ‘Indulgence shouldn’t come at the expense of wellbeing,’ Neale says of his menu, which focuses on ethical sourcing, allergy awareness and seasonal wholefoods. ‘When I started to really put an emphasis on my own health, I realised how few options are out there for people who want to eat according to a particular lifestyle, such as low carb, high fat. ‘I wanted to create a space for people to nourish their bodies with incredible, seasonal food while also staying healthy.’ Rounding out the menu with more than just pressed juice, My Son, Joy has created a Victorian only wine list and a unique and boutique Australian gin list, for a complete dining experience. With Melbourne mainstay Annabel McKay managing front of house, it isn’t hard to imagine that experience will hold up. The pair were united by their desire to make eating well simple through their love of ‘daylight dining’. ‘We’ve both spent our careers working late nights and living the lifestyle that comes with that,’ says the duo. ‘You get to the point where you just can’t maintain it anymore. Our aim is to combine our experiences in fine dining with a more modern concept of wellbeing’, within a relaxed and friendly environment. High quality nutrient dense whole foods with a focus on seasonality and ethical food sourcing. Food the nourishes the body. Lifestyle food-quality of food. Low carb, high fat. Allergy conscious. Awareness of food integrity/sustainability
