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.
Elyros, an ancient city where the principles of health and prosperity were abundant and the cuisine that flourished is our inspiration. After many a journey back to Crete, it became more apparent each time that we needed to express our hospitality in the form of our heritage. We decided that the cuisine from this island not only represents us in our background but also on our concerns for provenance and integrity. We pride ourselves in using local seasonal produce and free range, grass fed meats. Our décor is neo-classical, the dining room sets the tone for a procession of tastes all designed to be shared between friends and family, which will transport you to the fragrances of Crete. The wine bar next door is a perfect meeting place for lovers of meze dishes and wine and cocktails. All day fare of small plates and some Cretan pantry items available to purchase too. Our team will guide you through a tasting of Cretan flavours. Our wine team has compiled a list of wines from all over the world and smaller family wines for an enjoyable and cared for experience. For Sunday lunches we offer our $45 Family style sharing menu, where you can relax and enjoy the traditional meals our families have enjoyed on Sundays of past. Our commitment is to provide healthy Cretan cuisine from land and sea produce in keeping with the ethics of the Mediterranean diet.
