Together with his brother Chase, they have built an incredible reputation for creative, inspired and truly seasonal fare that has to be experienced to be believed.
They operate with a sustainable and minimal waste philosophy, and grow almost all of the restaurant produce on a nearby property, including hops for home-made beer and honey from their own bees.
I visited the farm and spoke to Blayne as he took me on a tour of the incredible operation that requires a team of dedicated employees and service staff to manage. It is a truly amazing, 7 days a week undertaking, with the restaurant receiving high accolades across the industry including a prestigious Two Hat's for culinary excellence by the Good Food Guide.
We are in awe of the dedication, passion and long-term vision that it takes to run a restaurant like this.
