Giddy up and jump on the right track this Melbourne Cup

If you can’t make it to Flemington this year, Saké Restaurant & Bar, Fratelli Fresh, The Cut Steakhouse and Munich Brauhaus will be holding Melbourne Cup day celebrations to rival any marquee; and the hardest part will be choosing which venue to visit.

Enjoy a stylish celebration this race day with a contemporary Japanese afternoon at Saké Flinders Lane and Saké Hamer Hall. Enjoy a glass of Veuve Clicquot on arrival before an exquisite, $95pp five-course lunch, including kingfish jalapeno, charred lamb chop with plum miso, popcorn shrimp and a decadent tiramisu at Saké Flinders Lane; or scampi tartare, grilled octopus with sakura spicy soft shell crab, and pork belly with kimchi and oyster ssamjag sauce at Saké Hamer Hall.

Sprawling two stories, with a modern, light-filled al fresco dining terrace, and two private dining rooms Saké Flinders Lane offers a unique dining destination. Saké Hamer Hall’s river front location on the Yarra, three private dining spaces and a mezzanine level ensures both intimate and elaborate Melbourne Cup soirees.

If fine wine and mouth-watering traditional Italian food is your vice, then the classic set menu at Fratelli Fresh is sure to fill the spot this Melbourne Cup day. For $70pp, share a selection of antipasti before deciding between a delicious lamb ragu penne, or mushroom tagliatelle, finishing with a hit of house-made gelato and a glass of frizzante on arrival. With its aptly horse-shoe shaped, marble-topped pizza counter and a laid-back dining room with signature red and white décor Fratelli Fresh offers casual dining, as well as drinks in the adjoining Fratelli Bar.

If you mean business this Cup Day there’s no better place to be than The Cut Steakhouse, conveniently located in the heart of the city. Enjoy three delicious courses and a glass of the finest Ruinart Champagne for $125pp. Select from a range of delicious entrees before enjoying a 270-day, grain-fed, NSW club steak with a choice of sides. Slip next door to The Library bar to enjoy a post-lunch drink, including The Cut’s quintessential cocktails, or globe trot the vast wine list and collection of whiskies.

Overlooking the promenade, Munich Brauhaus South Wharf is all about big food, big biers and one big party. With three bars, and private function spaces, and huge bier garden it is the perfect location for celebrations of all sizes. Get ready to sit back, relax and enjoy platters of delicious Bavarian goodness and ice cold steins of bier while watching the race that stops the nation on the big screen. The day will be jam packed with sweepstakes, prizes for best dressed, and traditional Oompah bands. Be ready for the Melbourne Cup’s biggest after party with DJs playing until late.
