Description
Sitting adjacent to the scenic Port Phillip Bay is the cool and collected Verve Restaurant in Brighton. Setting the tone for smart casual dining is Verve’s breezy yet carefully designed dining area; light wooden chairs and crisp linen set tables are matched with fresh flowers and a modern minimalist style. Sink into a large round wicker chair in the Lounge Bar and enjoy a selection from the huge range of national and international beverages on offer as you choose from tapas plates like braised spicy beef meatballs with rosemary and garlic potatoes or the Nonya style chicken satays with peanut and tamarind sauce. For those looking for a larger portion, the internationally infused menu also features fresh dishes like the seafood mixed grill.
