There's alchemy in the former asylum turned into one of Tasmania's most essential gems. It's the rare marriage of history and modernity seen in the dining hall's mix of pressed metal ceilings, lino floors and avant-garde chandelier, in the Australian drinks program that favours the brave, and in Ali Currey-Voumard's menu that spins gold from the nearby Agrarian farm grounds. The spare aesthetic spreads to the plates, where wood-roasted heirloom tomatoes, house-made stracciatella and sourdough triangulate perfection and puffy potato bread from the wood oven serves as a platform for pizza, Tassie-style, with sliced potato, mussel cream and herbs. The buzz has attracted a team of waiters par excellence. They'll wisely recommend you stay for dessert, where a slice of rhubarb and strawberry pie with thick cream is the ideal farmhouse favourite.
