Restaurant Review: Pei Modern (Bar)

Location: 45 Collins Street, Melbourne
Phone: 03 9654 8545
Link: peimodern.com.au
Cuisine:Coffee, Breakfast/Brunch, Modern Australian
Overall Impression: 7/10

Only 19 more sleeps until I finally dine at Mark Best’s Marque in Sydney. My excitement levels have raised quite a few notches now that I have had a quick taste of what the culinary genius Mark Best has to offer in the form of Pei Modern. 

After our S.A.T.C. lunch at Mamasita, KM, BB, Alice and I decided we needed some coffee and sweet treats. Pei Modern is conveniently located a mere seconds away from Mamasita, so we decided to get our caffeine and sugar fix there.
The result of a collaboration between Mark Best and the two MoViDa men, David Mackintosh and Peter Bartholomew, Pei Modern is a modern gastropub with a relaxed and modern ambience. The curved timber ceiling and the minimalistic designs make this space both comfortable and elegant.

What we received was brilliant service, top notch coffee and lovely sweet treats. The Sauternes Custard and Crostoli was the highlight of our visit. The custard was silky smooth and had the perfect level of sweetness from the bitter caramel and the crostoli was beautifully crisp. I cannot wait for a return visit to indulge in the restaurant menu.
