Last month, we donned on some fancy cocktail dresses and dusted off our heels whilst we attended the opening of Coal Cellar + Grill at The Hilton Hotel after it went through an extensive renovation which transformed the hotels ground floor. The new renovations reflected an updated look to the interior of the hotel for guests and locals with a modern look and feel with touches of natural timbers, leather, marble, granite and other rich textures to create a luxurious space.
What a transformation! The opening was held in the large open space on the ground floor with platters of fresh oysters and canapes for all to enjoy along with bubbles and drinks.
Oh! Don’t forget to look up! A mirrored ceiling with fancy gold light fixtures.
Bubbles and the Oriental Sunrise cocktail featuring green tea, lychee and other delicious things.. haha
Squid ink ocean trout with horseradish creme fraiche and beetroot, lemon myrtle tapioca – DEEEEEEE-LICIOUS!
Prawn BLT with charred tomato relish, bacon aioli and baby gem lettuce
Creme brulee, raspberry, pine nut and basil and caramelised white chocolate terrine with cocoa and caraway macaron, ginger ice cream and white chocolate snow
What a fun filled night with great company, seriously delicious food and impeccable service! We can’t wait to return and experience the new Hilton Adelaide’s restaurant and bar properly… but it probably won’t be til next year as my partner in crime on this occasion is jetting off to the big smoke that is NYC over the holiday season!
Maybe you folks will get in before us and dine at Coal Cellar + Grill over the summer. Their menu reflects their commitment to supporting South Australian produce with a feature charcoal grill and rotisserie whilst wine choice is abundant with over 500 labels listed, a majority from South Australia and all on display in their incredibly impressive Cellar. There are 3 private dining rooms available which surround the restaurant and a lounge bar for a more relaxed visit for coffee, tapas and cocktails. Fancy a lunch? They’ve also got an express lunch offer for $25 which includes a complimentary glass of house wine, beer or soft drink and coffee along with a choice of mains from their menu.
