92 Smith Street,Collingwood VIC
Elegance and sophistication combine on the plates of IDES in a gastronomic experience well-worth journeying out of the city to Smith Street in Collingwood. Previously Attica’s pop-up, this now permanent venture is as popular as ever, reminiscent of its parent venue in peaceful ambiance and grey carpeting, while adding in elements of velvet walls, leather coated tables and low light illuminating a moody palette of charcoal greys. A single menu of six dishes is constantly morphing with tweaks and seasonal ingredients, new techniques and textural combinations to make every experience a culinary adventure. Perhaps find savoury plates of Jerusalem artichokes cooked in vinegar or smoked eel with watercress and sweet potato and sweets like persimmon and chestnuts with feijoa and coco nibs.
