You have less than one month to get yourself down to The Aylesbury and up to their rooftop – for their Molecular Monday degustation experience. That may sound like an order because it is; you don’t want to miss this.

If you ever experimented with food when you were ah, young – then this is a venture for you. Daniel Dobra (Royal Mail/The Brix/Interlude) leads a young and inquisitive kitchen in presenting you with eight ‘experiments’ per se. There is also a smaller, sample menu but we recommend going the full degustation – at just $65 a head it is well worth it.

Two and half hours cruised by as we enjoyed several cocktails including a Milo rimmed Espresso Martini, which didn’t taste as dirty as that just sounded, a Jalisco Disco, a Cherry Bomb and some concoction which consisted of three rums, absinthe, and orange bits. The latter had a limit of two per customer – go figure.

Each and every dish that came out rivaled its precursor – we won’t give too much away because the goodness really is in the wonder but if we have to pick some standouts they are as follows:

The ‘Beached As’ leak with squid ink bacon, truffle powder, and foam; the veal shin bone with tomato, basil, white radish and melted bone marrow; and a new edition to the menu – the ‘St. Kilda Beach’: an apple crumble spin-off with a green and squishy ‘special something’ on your plate – completely indicative of the often infamous suburb to which the dish is named after.

We finished our night with edible cigarettes, a warm handshake from the bar staff, and an utterly content body and mind. We suggest you find a friend, a date or even a mum? And treat yourself to a sensory overload.

Molecular Monday is on until July 2 at The Aylesbury Rooftop from 6pm-11pm
