Modern Italian in the Hunter Valley
Modern contemporary Italian created by a talented team. The ethos of éRemo Restaurant is all about connecting with local producers and trialling one of a kind dishes making the éRemo experience, exceptional. That experience comes together in our Avido menu, which means “greedy” in Italian. The menu is complemented by a well-travelled wine list, including some of the Hunter Valley’s best vintages and a selection of those from further a field.
Spicers Guesthouse in the Hunter Valley welcomed Michael Elfwing in January this year as executive chef of éRemo restaurant, the centrepiece of the tranquil resort, surrounded by vineyards and a verdant estate. The retreat has been a Hunter Valley icon since the mid-80s, and today Spicer’s signature emphasis on locally sourced produce and naturally sustainable practices is showcased in its modern Italian cuisine.
éRemo is a destination in itself or the highlight of a country experience with the beauty and vitality of the environment being expressed, devoid of pretention, on the plate in front of you.
Elfwing came to Spicers from the Shangri-La Sydney in The Rocks, where he was executive chef, but his years in high-end hotel kitchens has been matched to time in the iconic Margaret River region at the prestigious Cape Lodge, and now in the serene vinous Hunter Valley at Spicers Guesthouse.
