The casually elegant Six Senses Maxwell restaurants and bars cater to all tastes and palates. Spearheaded by Chef Henry Jordan, the main restaurant is inspired by Euro-Mediterranean cuisine and features a healthful brasserie menu. Overall, the venues span the ground floor of the building, occupying the former Murray Terrace Food Alley to restore the former well-known dining destination, while creating a bustling and convivial atmosphere with guests spilling outdoors into the unique five-foot way.
We dropped by Murray Terrace Brasserie one evening after work to check it out. It is named after the 1929 original name of the building, with great historical significance.
The all-day menu offers seasonally-inspired fare including the best grass-fed meat, sustainable seafood, organic poultry and vegetarian dishes, created with health and wellness in mind and complemented by a wine list that celebrates the great regions of the world. Open throughout the day.
We decided to start off with the Vine Tomato and Watermelon Salad $18.
A brilliant rendition of granite, burrata, lemon balm vinaigrette and compressed melon, paired with a glass of the house champagne Taittinger Brut Reserve NV.
We decided to try the Hamchi Crudo $22 next.
A beautifully well balanced explosion of elderflower vinaigrette, citrus textures, pickled chilli, pickled radish and fennel pollen.
For the mains, we went for a Grass Fed Australian Rib Eye $46 with potato gratin, briased kale and bordelaise. It was pretty well executed with the natural marbling and flavours seeping into the palette, and it was not too dry for a grass fed cut.
The second main was a Lamb Rack with Bacon Wrapped Saddle $60, with charred onion, compressed courgettes, roasted pepper ratatouille and lamb jus.
For dessert we ordered the Lemon Kaffir Tart with Meringue, Kaffir Lime and Creme Fraiche. What a brilliant sweet ending to a satisfying meal.
