Concealed in the hidden lane way of Melbourne Place, Sezar brings a fresh approach on Armenian cuisine to the heart (and stomachs) of Melbourne. Brought to us by the talented team behind Black Toro, Sezar promises the finest Armenian experience - from the delectable food, imaginative cocktails to the carefully crafted wine list. 

Expect a feast of modern Armenian dishes in company of some old favourites - a display of food and drinks representing the best of flavours and aromas unique to Armenia. Especially Sezar's new Autumn menu which I had the pleasure of trying first hand:

Bastourma & Egg - Armenian air dried beef, quail egg, toasted brioche and garlic jam

Oysters with compressed apple and anise

Spinach and Feta Boreg with aleppo mayo

Cured Ocean Trout with apple and fennel salad, crème fraîche and roe

Grain Salad - Toasted pumpkin seed, almonds, sour cherries and labne

BBQ King Brown Mushrooms with toasted Israeli cous cous, sujuk and sweet potato puree 

Twice Cooked Chicken Wings with pomegranate glaze and crushed pistachios

Braised Lamb - Kaitaifi wrapped wih sesame mayo

Spanner Crab Manti - Armenian dumplings, sumac yoghurt and chilli oil

BBQ Wagyu Tenderloin with garlic yoghurt and lavash 

Triple Cooked Chips with roasted garlic & aleppo pepper

Sezar Express - Sloe gin, raspberry puree and fresh lime

Dessert Tasting Plate - New Style Baklava, Pistachio Cakes, 
Chocolate Marquis, Almond Milk Panna Cotta and Vanilla Parfait

I hate to play the favourite game, but if I must… the dish that stood out to me the most were the Spanner Crab Dumplings. Such unexpected, yet interesting flavours brought together. From the freshness of the crab, the tanginess and tartness of the sumac yogurt to the kick in the chilli oil - ahhhhh. And for the sweet tooths ? The dessert platter is a must. Food aside (never), what I enjoyed the most was the genuine sense of warmth and hospitality at Sezar.

Warm and fuzzies all round.
