7000 by Pure South

March 2016 | Pure South

Like the view? It’s from 7000 by Pure South Dining, the test kitchen we have opened whilst our flagship venue is being re-imagined. The space includes a dining area (with that stunning city view), a bar to enjoy a drink post-work or pre-theatre, space for private dining, and two generous balconies. In our temporary home we won’t be dictating how you dine; we will be offering an experience to suit your mood, not ours. This is the essence of hospitality. We think of it as ‘landscaped hospitality’; a taste of the approach to different spaces in the new Pure South Dining, when we open later in the year.

We are open seven days a week for dinner, and six days a week for lunch (closed Saturday lunch) so that Executive Chef David Hall and his team can spend as much time together in the kitchen working closely with our suppliers, to create and test dishes for the new Pure South Dining. It’s an amazing opportunity to transition our restaurant into the modern 2017 version of a Melbourne eatery. Our regulars, and the new friends we are looking forward to making, will be treated to beautiful produce without making that special occasion/fine dining commitment.

 You get to choose what you are in the mood for; lunch, dinner, a bite before the theatre, or a relaxing drink after work. It still feels like us, but less structured and more welcoming of unplanned dining. Our commitment to sustainable, ethical and provenance remain the foundations on which the menu and the service are delivered.

7000 refers to the range of postcodes in Tasmania, King Island and Flinders Island. We are still all about beautiful produce, highlighted in beautiful cooking, and our relationship with the farmers, fishermen and producers from these postcodes. We’ll be introducing you to all of them here in the journal over the next few months.

7000 by Pure South Dining will be open for lunch Sunday to Friday, and dinner seven days a week. You’ll find us on the Upper Level at Southgate in the space that was once the much loved Walter’s Wine Bar. It’s right near the Arts Centre and an ideal spot pre or post show.
