Om Nom to re-open with new focus on local wine and produce
As normality continues to return to Melbourne’s CBD, Om Nom at the famed Flinders Lane Adelphi Hotel has re-opened its doors to city workers and visitors. The hiatus has allowed time for a complete ‘re-think’ of its dining and drinking options, and Om Nom 2021 has re-emerged as vibrant wine & cocktail bar with a broadened appeal. The new menu features premium bar snacks, shareable charcuterie and cheese platters from Head Chef John Law (ex-Entrecôte), a carefully curated wine list by renowned Sommelier Daniel Clarke and widely sort-after signature cocktails from Mixologist, Grant Collins.
Both the new food menu and wine list have a deliberate emphasis on local producers, featuring charcuterie from Ballarat, cheeses from Milawa, and wines from the Yarra Valley, Macedon Ranges, and the Bellarine Peninsula.
Formerly famous as a dessert bar, the new-style Om Nom will offer a more relaxed way to re-connect and socialise over a shared platter after months of relative isolation.
According to Adelphi Hotel’s General Manager Dion Chandler, the pivot away from being a ‘special occasion’ to an ‘any occasion’ venue will give Melburnians and visitors the opportunity to enjoy the Om Nom experience on a regular basis.
“With so much home grown talent nearby, we’re encouraging walk-ins to drop in for a glass or two of Victorian wine – such as a Port Phillip Estate Red Hill Pinot Noir or Leura Park Estate Pinot Gris from the Bellarine Peninsula – complemented by, for example, a charcuterie platter featuring Mr Cannubi Free Range Noix de Jambon or Quattro Stelle Free Range Nduja and some Millawa Blue or Six Farm Triple Brie.
And, to celebrate our re-opening, we are offering Sydney Rock oysters for $2 each until 7pm or sold out every Friday from 4pm.”
The new menu includes gourmet bites ideal for sharing including Rosemary Halloumi Fries, Beef Tartare with smoked egg yolk, Pepus tinned Sardines and freshly grilled Sourdough and Potato Cheese Croquettes. Indulgent toasties oozing with local cheeses and house made chutneys served with a side of fries will satisfy any craving.
Those with a sweet tooth will be happy to hear there will be a seasonal selection of two Dessert offerings – one chocolate and one fruit-based along with Chefs special on rotation. Patrons can also still find plenty of sweet treats at Om Nom’s well-known weekend High Teas, back now with two sittings on Saturdays and Sundays (12pm and 2.30pm).
Regulars will be delighted to discover the most popular of Om Nom’s signature cocktail collection remain on the menu. These include Make the Call – Pimms, raspberry liqueur, orange juice, topped with ginger ale, garnished with a sherbet bag and served in London’s iconic red telephone box – Salted Caramel Cracking Espresso, Smoking Marshmallow Colada, and Toasted Pecan Negroni, plus we will be introducing many more classic and authentic cocktails to the ever evolving menu.
Both Om Nom and the Adelphi Hotel are fully COVID-compliant and have contact tracing measures in place that apply to all patrons.
Om Nom re-opens its doors mid-April and encourages walk-ins. Bookings are also available via their website.
Friday 4pm until late.
Saturday 6pm until late.
