BLACK Bar & Grill is adding a touch of contemporary Australian flair to the day, with scallops from the charcoal oven served with wakame butter, Angus fillet with lobster tail and miso hollandaise, and the classic lamington is given a new twist, served as chocolate, cherry, vanilla and coconut sorbet.
