There's much to admire at QT Melbourne. The parquetry ceilings in the foyer, the rooftop terrace (perfect for an apéritif), and a glass-cased book tower flanking the stairs to Pascale Bar & Grill. In a city rich with fine restaurants, Pascale's calling cards are bold design and a Robert Marchetti menu of trendy share plates and premium offerings. Launch into the oyster bar or a plate of poke-style chopped tuna with sesame oil, kimchi and bonito, then brace yourself for a grilling. Pascale lives up to its names with a strong cocktail game and a muscular array of meats, from black Angus rib-eye to dinosaur-sized wagyu tomahawk steaks from Robbins Island. Prices can be steep (beware the $36 zucchini blossoms, and some enthusiastic wine mark-ups), but share plates are decent value and the trappings - Laguiole knives, French butter, jewel-like éclairs served in black liqueur boxes at the end of the meal - help justify the expense.
