EZARD is Chef Teage Ezard's eponymous fine diner, and one of the most respected dining institutions in Melbourne.
Nearly twenty years on and still going strong: When Teage Ezard launched his flagship restaurant EZARD in 1999, he quickly earnt a reputation as one of the city’s leading exponents of degustation dining.
Today, that reputation is undiminished. Not only was Teage the first chef to see the potential of Flinders Lane as a hot dining precinct, he was also a forerunner of a type of cooking known as “Australian Freestyle”, in which chefs freely take ideas and techniques from elsewhere – particularly Southeast Asia – and apply them to Australian produce.
Respecting the importance of progress and innovation, EZARD has recently embarked on a re-launch that has significantly elevated the service style and one’s expectation when visiting this establishment.
The introduction of a 5-course tasting menu, a complete upgrade on key signature menu items that have been present for 19 years, dedicated vegan and vegetarian tasting menu options and a multi-level wine pairing experience for all tasting menus to name a few; have all played a part in capturing the new essence of EZARD.
The recent refurbishment has also embraced an Australasian theme who’s story plays out subtly when dining at EZARD. A list of talented local artisan producers have all contributed in setting the scene and elevating your dining experience. From hand soaps and balms that echo the native Australian narrative with a eucalyptus scent, to bespoke sets of cutlery and crockery that truly complete the space.
The team are excited and look forward to sharing their new vision with you.
