Little sister to The Elephant down the driveway, DUMBO dishes out fresh-made Italian gastronomic delights in a hip, high-end space with an upbeat atmosphere, from the morning brunch rush to the evening cocktail hour.

With plenty of vegan and vegetarian options to choose from, DUMBO adds a modern twist on traditional Italian classics. Stop by for brunch and try the breakfast burger, a fennel and pine nut burger layered with a fried egg, mushrooms, onions, truffle aioli and chilli jam. Or, pull apart some creamy mozzarella burrata while digging into pumpkin ravioli, warmed in a roast tomato cream sauce served with ricotta and basil.

From the friendly, attentive service and elegant setting, to the thoughtfully crafted, curated menu of dishes that resemble works of food art, Blanco is a fine dining experience in authentic Indonesian cuisine. Whether you opt for the 7, 9, or 12-course meal, each mouthwatering dish, created by award-winning chef Mandif Warokka, has a beverage that it pairs with perfectly. Yellowfin tuna served with tomato, lime, garlic and basil, is paired with a 2016 riesling from Germany. 21-day aged Peking duck in a Balinese broth, duck roulade and Indonesian chilli salsa, is paired with a cocktail of Plantation rum, Campari, pineapple and torched ginger. Reserve a seat at Blanco for a dining experience you’ll never forget.
