Pei Modern is the project of a gastronomic dream team from Melbourne including Mark Best, Peter Bartholomew, David Mackintosh, Ainslie Lubbock (Manager) and Matthew Germanchis (Head Chef) which opened on the 2nd March. The team are interested in the global democratisation of food – what in Paris is called ‘Bistronomy’ – that is, making sure that beautiful high quality ingredients can be offered to as many people as possible by concentrating on fresh and uncomplicated cooking techniques and offering these in a restaurant setting that is clean, modern and elegant.
The restaurant is situated on the porte cochere of Collins Place, home to Sofitel Hotel Melbourne and the Kinoi Cinema Complex, and has been designed by Helen Rice.
The restaurant will be open 7 days a week, from morning coffee, through lunch and dinner, to late night drinks in the bar.
