Rounding off the huge success of our Plant-Based Dining Experience evenings, we are now taking bookings for our last such event for this season. Our AA Rosette Awarded Head Chef, Brad Roe, works with the canvas of Ventnor Botanic Garden’s edulis Restaurant. Brad can often be seen foraging in both the nurseries and the garden itself looking for micro herbs, exotic salads and even edible flowers. He aims to marry fine dining with the creative use of these homegrown and locally sourced plants. It’s not about vegan, vegetarian or whole foods… it’s about plant-based dining.
Ventnor Botanic Garden offers a six-course menu with every dish that will be introduced by Brad himself. The dining experience begins at 7.30pm, but why not arrive a little before for pre-Dinner drinks (and peruse the carefully selected complementary wine list).
