Catering & Menus

We specialise in providing you with a unique dining experience and surpassing your guests’ expectations.

Plaza Ballroom Executive Chef, David Ricardo comes to the role with over 18 years’ experience in Melbourne and Hong Kong’s top restaurants (formerly of the Lucas Group; Pearl, Chin Chin). He believes that function and event style dining should be able to echo the same level of passion and quality that Melbourne has come to expect from its restaurants.

“Our vision is to ensure that we serve premium quality, contemporary dishes reflecting both Melbourne’s food culture and the sense of occasion and extravagance of the Plaza Ballroom.”

Having previously won two chef’s hats as Head Chef at Pearl Restaurant & Bar, and having hosted The Age Good Food Awards the last two years in a row – dishing up for some of the very best chefs and restauranteurs in the business - David’s menus are inspired by today’s food culture providing a consistent and exciting standard that competes with the best restaurants in Melbourne.

David and his team promise a gastronomic sensory experience using modern techniques, contemporary styles and with a particular emphasis on sustainable, locally sourced and seasonal produce, as reflected in the stunning seasonal menus that are readily adapted to individual clients’ needs.
