Wood 'n Chimney is located in Melbourne Central where the old Groove Train used to be. We saw it the other day while buying movie tickets at Hoyts and decided to check it out today.
The interior is warm, with wood furnishings and dim lighting.
We weren't super hungry, and creamy pasta tends to fill you up so we decided to order two dishes to share between the three of us.
We had the Chicken Risotto with pumpkin, caramelised onion and spinach. The risotto was perfectly done, very rich and creamy. The sauce was flavoursome and perfectly seasoned - there was a hint of curry to it, which was unexpected but nice. Mum really enjoyed it and was raving about it later.
|Chicken Risotto $20|
|Lamb shank $24.50|
Overall, a bit pricey but the portions are pretty big. Loads of flavour in each dish, so if you don't like salty food or have a more delicate palate, this might not be the place for you. I'd come back to try the pizza and the tortellini or duck risotto.
