The menu at Mr & Mrs Bund is one of the largest we’ve seen at a fine-dining spot. It was so intimidating to some diners when it was first released, the modern French restaurant created a special pared-down version dubbed the “Rookie Menu.” However, those who aren’t afraid of a wealth of thought-provoking options will delight in poring over the full menu. Chef Paul Pairet has organized the offerings by main ingredient, so each section is headed by its name, such as “tomato” or “beef.” Below, all the various styles in which the kitchen uses this ingredient are listed. For tomato, preparations include tomato with roasted goat cheese, sage and oregano, and gazpacho summer bread Catalan made with toasted bread, tomato, roasted capsicum, fresh anchovies and arugula. Under beef, choose from three different types of steak, including Châteaubriand fillet and rib-eye Wagyu, served with six different sauces, such as béarnaise-tartar and bordelaise ceps marrow.
