About Cognoscenti Food & Wine

Those passing through the Dandenong Ranges find cosy neighbourhood restaurant Cognoscenti Food & Wine on Burwood Highway in Belgrave. Just 50 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD, this stylish dining destination is well worth the trip, with a rustic ambience of recycled timber floors, potted greenery and shelves stocked with wine selections. On balmy days, the courtyard is the ideal spot for sunny cocktails, while grazing on snacks such as sweet corn and cheddar croquettes with confit garlic aioli; while evening diners may start with beef tartare, yuzu kosho and white soy dressing, smoked cream, pickled shallots and rice crisps. For the main, delve into BBQ pork belly, caramelised cauliflower purée, mustard greens and spiced quince juice; finish decadently with Basque cheesecake and passionfruit.
