Glass Brasserie

Think of Glass as a DIY playlist: a random download from raw, tapas, entrée, main and grill menus. Scoop pop-star Yarra River salmon roe onto mini brioche squares while perusing the Top 1000 wines from Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy and Spain. Go crazy with desire. Then ask the sommelier to pick something by the glass. He's your man, crisp as a Bortoluzzi pinot grigio. He'll have slivers of char-grilled ox tongue with roasted pepper relish sorted in no time. Ditto tea-smoked quail with a swish of almond cream; even an ambitious mix of snapper fillet, tempura prawns and edgy Thai salad with a broth that deserves its own Facebook page. At night, the modern architectural space, with its 13-metre floor-to-ceiling window to the QVB, is as dazzling as the desserts, the chart-toppers being a signature liquorice parfait and toffee soufflé. Far from a generic hotel experience, this is invigorating dining.
