Simones @ Bright

 

In 1986, George and Patrizia Simone embarked on a journey to North East Victoria, a region that fondly reminded them of Italy, to open Simones restaurant.  Patrizia presented dishes fondly remembered from her childhood and Perugia.  With Nonna Maria making her traditional pasta and George introducing local and Italian wines, this family affair started to pave the way for the future.

 

Being recognized and awarded with many accolades from The Age Good Food Guide and Gourmet Traveller alike, the restaurant became an institution of North East Victoria.  In 2009, Patrizia was created a Legend of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival in recognition of her chef skills and passionate promotion of seasonality and regionality through her work with local food and wine producers.

 

Now, Anthony and Hope Simone lead the way to continue the family passion and tradition.  They have both worked in leading restaurants both internationally and regionally.  They now add their skills and interpretation to the successful evolution of Simones Restaurant.

WHO WE ARE

 

While Anthony draws on his family's traditional cooking, he now takes the menu into a new direction.  That, combined with Hope's extensive front of house and sommelier skills, ensures that the restaurant's award-winning service continues. They have continued an a la carte menu and created an optional degustazione for your dining pleasure.

‘Anthony Simone creates dishes that are locally farmed, foraged, pulled from the kitchen garden, house-butchered, baked, cured and crafted with care’       The Age Good Food Guide 2015.
