One of the most enjoyable parts of opening a new restaurant is putting together the menu. Our team of chefs worked for months to create recipes for a collection of complimentary dishes for our lunch and dinner menu to go with our diverse drinks options. Mr McCracken serves modern Australian food crafted from the finest local produce and presented with our unique flair. Every dish is prepared with love and we pride ourselves on the quality of every menu item. Each day we also feature seasonal specials crafted by our talented chefs using the freshest ingredients. Here’s a closer look at some of our favourite dishes.
Whether you’re treating yourself at the weekend, have a business meeting to host over a midday meal or are just feeling peckish in the middle of the day, the menu at Mr McCracken has something for everyone. Two of our main dishes centre around the finest cuts of locally caught fish and are perfect for a summery Melbourne day. We also have a range of crisp salads and luxurious charcuterie options which are ideal for mid-day eats. If you’re after something a little lighter you’re in luck because we have a number of ‘small’ options to satiate that niggling hunger without making you feel sluggish for the rest of the day.
Looking for a recommendation for dinner? Why not fill up on our delicious gnocchi or prawn and clam linguini. Classically Italian with a creative Mr McCracken flair to remind you where you’re enjoying your evening meal, all made with the freshest local ingredients. And while we’re exploring Italy, our pizzas come with a range of classic and alternative toppings to suit every palate and are always made fresh to order.
Pst! If you’re a pizza fan, you should probably head to Mr McCracken on a Monday when our famous pizzas are all just $15!
A meal isn’t complete without a treat to follow, right? Whether you’ve got a sweet tooth and are craving our chocolate delight with homemade sesame nougatine and mandarin sorbet or want to go a little more classic with a selection of fine cheeses, Mr McCracken will see you through from the beginning of your meal to the end.
Every delicious meal has to be accompanied with the right tipple. The bar in Mr McCracken is always stocked and serving a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. We are proud to be offering local craft beers, all available on tap for a limited time, so be sure to check back regularly to see who we’re showcasing. Locality, freshness and quality are all of paramount importance to our bartenders. We also offer many local wines, along with some classic international bottles. And of course we have spent months perfecting our cocktail flavours and honing our mixology skills. Our personal favourite might just be the white chocolate and passion fruit martini.
Whatever you’re craving, not matter what your dietary requirements (we’ll do our best to cater to all), we look forward to hosting you at Mr McCracken very soon.
