Echoes Restaurant

Blue Mountains

Overview

Echoes Restaurant’s gastronomical experience is as much about the smorgasbord of multicultural influences brought to its kitchen by a global staff as it is about showcasing nature’s local and regional bounty.

Description

Perched on the absolute edge of the Blue Mountains escarpment, surrounded by uber chic décor with jaw-dropping views over the Jamison Valley, diners experience a cultural fusion in every bite from the contemporary Australian menu with Asian influences. With few exceptions, food and wine is sourced from within a 100 mile (160km) radius of the kitchen, distinguishable by the flavour of crisp Blue Mountains air and earthy tones of the Central West. Traditional Asian flavours of chilli, lemongrass, kimchi and black bean enhance those of Hunter Valley-sourced Angus beef, duck from the Hawkesbury and lamb from Northern NSW. Seafood is only ever sourced from Australia, while local and regional-grown vegetables, greens, chocolate, berries, mushrooms and herbs are routinely on the menu. A growing proportion of vegetables, fruit and herbs are even sourced from the 1000sqm edible garden at Echoes’ sister property, Parklands Country Gardens & Lodges [please embed link: www.parklands.com.au] at Blackheath. In fact, regional produce is crucial to modern dining, where diners are discerning and ethically conscious. Like all dining outlets across Escarpment Group {embed link: www.escarpmentgroup.com.au], the Echoes Restaurant menu carries a specially-designed logo printed next to items which include at least 80 per cent local and regional ingredients. This extends to beverages and the popular matched wines option featuring regional wines which complement food in a way that beverages from other areas cannot because winemakers and producers are often influenced by the same things – the weather, the culture, the soil and the land itself. The result is a smorgasbord of flavours that is a unique dining experience to our guests alone. The upmarket award winning restaurant’s magical combination of world-class fine dining and incomparable location ensures a memorable experience for any occasion, whether a casual lunch with friends or a romantic dinner for two. Suspended over the reception foyer, Echoes Bar completes the ultimate dining experience and sets a spectacular atmosphere where breathtaking views dominate and cosmopolitan style meet. The venue is ideal for pre-dinner drinks and for those more inclined to gossip over a designer-martini or a glass of vintage champagne. Echoes Restaurant & Bar, Lilianfels Ave, Katoomba, is open for lunch and dinner seven days. Bookings: reservations@echoeshotel.com.au or phone 61 2 4782 1966.
