Canberra Convention Bureau
Top Secret 2019
We were invited to explore the Doma Hotels as part of Canberra Convention Bureau’s Top Secret program 2019. We were treated to a wondrous lunch put together by the talented culinary team headed up by the brilliant and focused Executive Chef Fabian Wagnon.
Doma Hotels have built an amazingly activated precinct starting with their flagship Hotel Realm, then continuing the vision with The Burbury, Little National and The inventive refurbishment of The Brassey which is the home to the bespoke Hale Gym + Spa.
Doma Group also have some stunning and diverse food & beverage offerings in their Bush Capital Neighbourhood with French finessing Buvette Bistro and Bar, the great watering hole Ostani, the elegance of Burberry Terrace, the modern Asian Lilotang, Cafe wizardry Maple + Clove and the lauded Chairman & Yip as well as conferencing and event space for almost every requirement you could devise or imagine. Something here for everybody.
Executive Chef, Fabian Wagnon’s understanding of modern Australian cuisine rooted from his accomplished French background. He served us a memorable and creative lunch journey from French classic quail and veal terrine to modern fresh ideas such as tempura lobster bao. As the wise Ice Cube once said “today was a good day”.
Justin Higgins- General Manager, Hotel Realm and Burbury Hotel: “Welcome to the heart of Australia.
