The Burn returns to Grand Hyatt Melbourne
Grand Hyatt Melbourne is bringing back the burn with the city’s favourite barbeque legends, Burn City Smokers, taking over the hotel’s award-winning Collins Kitchen restaurant this Wednesday 9th May.
After extending their three-month residency to six months last year due to an overwhelming demand, Steve Kimonides and Raphael Guthrie have towed in their custom-built smoker for round two and are ready to show off their smokin’ hot new additions to their Southern American-inspired menu.
Working closely with Grand Hyatt Melbourne’s Executive Chef Jason Camillo, new dishes include wood-fried pippies, a Burn City Smokers “Chiko” roll, and an indulgent meat platter for two with pork ribs, brisket and smoked chicken. For vegetarians, the expanded menu also includes jalapeno poppers, fried camembert and an impressive smoked mushroom burger. Last year’s fans need not to worry as the famous Burn City Smoker brisket burger is also back along with the boys’ unrivalled homemade sauces.
Keeping it Melbourne-Made
As passionate supporters of local talent, Grand Hyatt Melbourne has collaborated with Melbourne-based muralist, Justine McAllister for the pop-up’s return. As one of the most exciting artists emerging from the competitive Melbourne street art scene, diners can enjoy spotting Justine’s signature collage-style designs and bold colours throughout the restaurant and outside the hotel. Be sure to check out her most notable artwork on display in the hotel’s lobby – an impressive hand-painted cow. This unique piece is on silent auction for the duration of the pop-up and Grand Hyatt Melbourne welcomes all to walk in and place a bid.
Burning for a Cause
All proceeds from the silent auction will go directly to Wheelly Good Coffee – a local social enterprise run by Whitelion, a not-for-profit that supports young people at risk. By providing employment through barista training, the program provides young people in need a chance to help break the disengaging cycle and make positive changes towards a new life. At Grand Hyatt Melbourne, we are passionate about the hospitality industry and the service we provide. We are proud to support a program that helps foster new talent in the industry…and who knows, may uncover the next superstar barista in town.
Burn City Pop-Up will be at Collins Kitchen until the end of August 2018 with its menu available for lunch and dinner. For full menu details, please visit our website: melbourne.grand.hyatt.com
