The Prince is definitely a big night kind-of-place, though budget diners may wish to take advantage of the lunch special here for a sneak preview. The kitchen is overseen by culinary mastermind Andrew McConnell. Expect humble seasonal ingredients to be exploited to the max, along with one of the best wine lists in Melbourne. The dining room is highly seductive, with sensual lighting and beautiful furnishings. From the kitchen comes dishes such as cured kingfish and smoked salmon with avruga caviar and Melba toast or slow-cooked duck wrapped in Tunisian brik pastry with fresh green peppercorns and a petit salad of turnip, pear and radish.
