After closing over the weekend due to a fire last Thursday, Red Spice Road is already re-opening today, the restaurant revealed in a recent press release.

“Everyone has pulled together to re-open in just 5 days; it’s amazing what the restaurant team and restoration crew has achieved,” said restaurant co-owner Vanessa Green.  “Our customers have been wonderful and very understanding – we know it’s a terrible time of year to have your dinner booking cancelled and we have done everything we can to open the doors as fast as possible,” she said.

Led by Executive Chef John McLeay, and Head Chef Dylan McCormack, the menu emphasises freshness, presentation and above all, flavour.  Red Spice Road recently won The Age Good Food Guide 2016 People’s Choice award and is possibly best known for the signature pork belly – a long standing Melburnian favourite.

“We believe food should look great and taste even better, that’s always been our philosophy” said Executive Chef John McLeay.  “It’s been a great team effort”, he said, explaining that Red Spice Road limited the obvious impact of the closure to diners during the festive season by accommodating them at sister restaurants Red Spice QV, Burma Lane and Meat Fish Wine.

“Since Red Spice Road opened in 2007 we’ve been thrilled to have so many fantastic guests and talented staff join us on our journey through Asia” said restaurant co-owner Andrew Cameron.  “We apologise for the inconvenience caused by this short closure and look forward to welcoming our diners and guests back soon,” he said.
