SOUTH Gippsland resident and ophthalmologist, Dr David Ehrlich, has recently opened a stunning and unique restaurant, ‘The Grove Gippsland’, offering fine dining, a relaxed bar area and an events venue & music/art space.
The restaurant resides amongst an olive & truffle grove with views 250 metres above sea level over the Bass Hinterland.
‘The Grove Gippsland’ at Krowera is less than an hour and a half from Melbourne’s CBD.
Surrounded by boutique B n B’s, just 30 minutes from the RACV Inverloch Resort, The Grove offers relaxed dining in a stylish and tranquil setting.
Minutes from Loch, the area boasts fabulous wineries, distilleries, antiques & collectables and fresh organic produce retailers.
As well as producing their own olive oil, The Grove also grows organic heirloom herbs & vegetables which feature proudly within their seasonal menu.
Restauranteur & owner, David, reaffirms the reputation Gippsland has established for producing high quality sustainable food.
“The Grove’s menu features fresh, local, ethically sourced ingredients, cooked with love & presented in a simple and authentic manner, changing weekly to reflect the seasons of Gippsland and Bass Coast.
“Executive Chef, Antony Ellis, has returned to South Gippsland from Melbourne, with a mission, to place The Grove Gippsland front and centre as an ethical and sustainable regional restaurant.
“The Grove carefully selects suppliers who farm with boundless enthusiasm, love and integrity. Producers of clean, honest food, such as Amber Creek Pork, Gippsland Natural, Grow Lightly, Red Coral Seafood, Oak n’ Swan, Bassine Specialty Cheese, Prom Country Cheese, Mirboo Farm, Gusto Gelateria & Pastry, Isola Chianina, to name a few.
“We are constantly looking for additional farm produce of an exceptional standard, especially smaller growers who are aware and sensitive to any environmental impact which may result from their food production.”
