Cumulus Inc.
Cumulus Inc.
Cumulus Inc., Melbourne restaurant review The silver lining Every cloud has one, so the saying goes, but Andrew McConnell’s latest venture, Cumulus Inc., seems to have more than its fair share. John Lethlean takes a trip to seventh heaven. There is nothing quite so delicious as the dawn of a chef’s new restaurant. Particularly when he or she has form. Those first few months can see all sorts of factors combine to create a heady cocktail of irresistibility. And when a great chef puts his (or her) balls on the line to open a place that will attract a lot of scrutiny, putting themselves at the focal point, there’s often a kind of magic you feel every time you walk through the door from day one. Sometimes it even lasts. There’s the buzz of familiar faces, propped at the bar, comfy at a table, and they’re all here for the same reason you are, slaking the thirst of curiosity. There’s the pleasure of taking in the room, its design, amenity, the way it expresses the owner’s restaurant philosophy and tastes, and assessing how it works. Is this, you ask yourself, a place I’m going to spend a lot of time, enjoy some happy meals, or is it just a strange canvas for the owner’s art? Then there’s the excitement of hopping into new dishes, creations the chef’s been working on for months, maybe years, knowing one or two of them may well resonate so loudly as to become part of the city’s foodie folklore. Most satisfying of all, however, is the feeling that even if the dishes become more refined, they will never quite express such purity and enthusiasm as those first weeks and months when the chef knows that getting it out there with love is the key to the business’s future. And in the case of Cumulus Inc., the new side project for chef Andrew McConnell, there’s the knowledge that the chef/co-owner himself is there too, on the other side of the white marble counter, watching everything and doing plenty of it himself. And that’s something that almost certainly cannot last, given the expanding portfolio McConnell has shouldered recently: the ongoing success of Carlton’s Three, One, Two; the building of a new Fitzroy restaurant that will supersede it late this year; and now Cumulus Inc., itself no small beer. We take of him what we can. There’s one other more pragmatic angle to the post-launch honeymoon story: opening prices are about as good as they’re ever going to get. In short, I’ve had some very exciting times in new restaurants over the years. And I’m getting that same buzz from a one-time gallery space in what is rapidly becoming the new food precinct of Melbourne, the top end of Flinders Lane. When McConnell first mooted the idea of a new restaurant for the city last year, he underplayed his hand in characteristic style. He talked about a “casual, simple place”; he talked of breakfast to dinner six days of the week; he talked of takeaway food. All of which has translated to the final product. But the finished item has so much more style and sophistication than those preliminary musings suggested. McConnell’s business partner and wife, Pascale Gomes-McNabb, has applied her architectural experience and design flair to this semi-industrial, loft-like space to brilliant effect. Light, airy, classic and quirky all at once, this is Gomes-McNabb’s finest creation yet for her husband’s often-brilliant food. With a bank of 1940s metal-framed windows facing Flinders Lane, hardwood floors, white walls, industrial load-bearing pillars and tongue-in-groove timber ceilings, this place has the feel of luxurious functionality. It’s a combination that enhances, rather than competes with, the simple but nevertheless excellent food coming from McConnell and his team, many of whom have come over from Three, One, Two, including partner and manager Jayden Ong. It should be no surprise that a chef who has given us two of the city’s best restaurants of the past decade (Diningroom 211 and Three, One, Two, not to mention Circa when the restaurant was at its best) should again surprise us with his ‘eating house and bar’. But at Cumulus Inc., McConnell again demonstrates his ability to translate clever, quirky and very satisfying food ideas, no matter what the pitch. My first introduction to the place was a Saturday morning breakfast just a week into the restaurant’s life and, to my surprise, there was McConnell, working away with his team. A cook, first and foremost. Sardines on house-made toast, a spicy tomato juice, proper coffee, friendly service and a newspaper: I think everybody in the place, as I did, asked for a look at the lunch/dinner menu. You could taste the potential. Under ‘Oysters’, for example, which opens proceedings, six are offered. Of those, five are produced by Batemans Bay grower Steve Feletti, of Moonlight Flat Oysters. Here, at Cumulus Inc., McConnell lets the produce do all the talking by simply opening the things carefully, putting them on a bed of rock salt, adding a cheek of lemon, sliced house-made brea
Bologna:View from the Asinelli Tower
Bologna:View from the Asinelli Tower
Bologna:View from the Asinelli Tower of the Prendiparte Tower This tower dating to the 12th century was constructed by a consortium once belonging to the powerful Guelf family Prendiparte. The current owner is Matteo Giovanardi. It’s 58.50m tall and is the second highest in Bologna but is thought to be originally much higher since the walls at ground level are 2.86m thick. Also known as the Coronata – the Crowned One – because near the top are jagged brick works that resemble the shape of a crown. For a long time it served as a military stronghold but in 1588 it was sold to the Mensa Arcivescovato (Curia of the Archdiocese which, incidentally, was connected to the seminary next door). Up until this point, this structure, like many others around Bologna at the time was a fortress that offered refuge in times of danger. However, when the seminary relocated, the tower was turned to a more sombre use. These tiny rooms were used as a prison by the Archdiocese in the 18th century. Sentences were passed by the ecclesiastical tribunal. After the prison was closed the tower soon fell to disrepair over the decades and it wasn’t until the 1750’s that an attempt was made to try and restore it. This was a partial fix though since only a few floors at the bottom were renovated leaving the top untouched. In 1972 Clemente Giovanardi bought the tower from its previous owner from Imola who apparently was prepared to sell it due to his own financial problems. This new investment for Signor Giovanardi was in fact registered under his son Matteo who was only a teenager at the time. After years of costly renovations Matteo eventually moved into the 12 storey tower and made it his home for some years. He said of it: “Living in a place like this allows you to isolate yourself from the outside world and to find yourself. It emphasizes your state of being, amplifying your senses. Whether you are reading a book or listening to your iPod, you are able to let go of your senses more freely knowing that you’re protected by walls that are two meters thick that were built nine centuries ago.” Presently though, Torre Prendiparte is now an exclusive B&B since to rent it means renting the whole tower. Other services include using it for events, exhibitions, cocktail parties, meetings and of course a romantic dinner on the roof top terrace. One of the strangest events here included a tango exhibition for 30 people in 2007. Artists are also encouraged to find inspiration here since the vertical use of space makes this tower an interesting proposition. This third floor room referred humorously as the Punishment Cell is used for holding a buffet or light snacks. In the past though this little covered section here by the window was a solitary confinement cell. This room on the fourth floor is often used for galas or even wine tasting but this was the official prison room in 1751. Under the table in the corner, is this little hole. It was actually the toilet so prisoners would have to stand above it and presumably aim well. On the opposite side is another significant piece of past evidence. It’s bowl shaped hole which was used to mix urine and a red powder to produce these next incredible pieces of ancient graffiti. This image is of a baby Jesus of which there are three more above this one. On another wall is this very graphic illustration which in Italian is all too familiar for meaning that this place for a prisoner was really difficult and hard going. One piece of graffiti puts this feeling into words and laments: ‘la misera condicione di chi viene qua dentro,’ meaning, ‘miserable conditions wait for those who come here. The hard work of climbing to the top of the 12 storeys soon pays-off. Bologna can be seen far and wide with all the unmistakable sights like the Due Torre and the famous churches appearing on its doorstep. On the side of this brickwork is a marble plaque. It states that the tower belonged to the Prendiparte family, but underneath it also includes the name Luccio Bernagozzi who carried out one of the first restoration programmes here in 1884.
