What should you have for dinner?

What should you have for dinner?

It’s the question that graces our lips almost daily. Whether you are cooking at home or out for dinner, it can be the hardest decision we make some days! If you’re going out for dinner because you can’t be bothered to cook tonight, its someone’s birthday, a romantic date night or simply because you’re having a little bit of a “treat yo’ self” moment, the answer is two words: Dennys. Kitchen.

Why? Well for starters there is our brand new Spring/Summer menu (but you are probably already pretty keen for that). Inspired by Italian street food and the light modern twist we’re known for, we really have something for everyone and definitely something new if you are looking to broaden your horizons. If we haven’t already won you over, let us treat you to not one, but two courses of from our extensive selection for $25. It seems too good to be true, and frankly we can’t believe it either but we couldn’t think of a more fantastic way to showcase what we’re proud to do here at Dennys!

Whether you love an Arancini entrée with your Herb Encrusted Lamb or a Semifreddo to top off the Handmade Three Cheese Ravioli there’s no way you can go wrong. Not to mention the endless combinations of courses that will have you coming back to try everything else on the menu. With a new cocktail every month invented by our very own talented bar staff, refreshed locally sourced wine list and the atmosphere for any occasion.

Here at Denny’s we’ve certainly got you covered! Although we can’t guarantee the decision of exactly what to get off our menu will be any easier, we can assure you nothing will be the wrong choice. If all else fails with the tedious decision making that perplexes us all when dinner time comes around, just ask our amazing staff! Seriously. These guys would eat here every day if they could… come to think of it they have been known to take advantage of the two for $25 on rare nights off from serving all you lovely folks!

A New Menu at Dennys Kitchen

Just as the warmer weather means sun, sand and surf to Geelong and the Bellarine, to us all here at Dennys it means a world of possibilities. A shiny new delivery of ideas, fresh produce, seasonal ingredients, cocktails, and experimentation…

It’s that time of year again! A New Menu at Denny Kitchen! The weathers warming up, the days are longer and everything seems a little bit brighter. Something else you might’ve noticed is all your favourite haunts in Geelong exhibiting their new ‘spring/summer’ menus like they’re Versace with a new collection.

Well, it’s probably no surprise but here at Dennys we’re well and truly on the seasonal menu bandwagon too with a New Menu at Dennys Kitchen. I know what you’re thinking; well, I don’t really but I’m guessing it’s along the lines of “if it’s not broken…” or “CAN I STILL GET NONNA’S RAGU???”.

Don’t panic, our famous Ragu isn’t going anywhere just because the cold weather has left us. The question does remain, why are we changing (if I may say so myself) the rather delicious menu we’ve had for the last three months? To be honest, it’s because we just really love food!

Hell, we’re even totally revamping our wine list because were just that excited! The inspired Kelly Adamo (Head Chef), along with Jen (the mind behind our mouth-watering buttered popcorn and salted caramel panna cotta), Bobbi and Jed, has created our new menu which is the perfect blend of Geelong and sunny southern Italy. Think beautiful locally sourced seafood, handmade pasta and the zesty citrus twist of an Aparol Spritz or our current ‘Cocktail of the Month’: Lemon Meringue Martini. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported to the Amalfi Coast without even leaving our historic bluestone surrounds.

White Night Geelong with Dennys Kitchen

White Night Geelong

White Night Geelong makes its debut this October.

Park the car early and head to Dennys Kitchen for dinner before stepping out on Brougham Street to experience White Night Geelong.

White Night Geelong will light up Geelong city with colourful projections, installations and music performances.

Inspired by the international Nuit Blanche movement that began in Paris in 2002 White Night arrived in Australia via Melbourne in 2013. This spectacular event reimagins the city through art, music, colour and light. Making its debut this year, White Night Geelong welcomes all to witness the city reimagined in a one-night-only festival of illumination, transformation and participation.

With David Atkins at the helm as Artistic Director, White Night Geelong will bring the city’s streetscape and rich history to life with the program playing tribute to the region’s maritime and indigenous heritage.

Among many new installations, the night will also include some important crowd favourites including The Armistice – Victoria Remembers, a projection that pays tribute to the fallen service men and women of World War I and builds on the year of the Centenary Celebration of the Armistice.

Sleep Keepers will also feature, as eventgoers are encouraged to close their eyes and drift away on a roving, lit-up bed, while local artists Jasmine Grace and Anne Wilson will be recognised via their works Horizons, a light-art installation and Groundplane Opera, a live performance piece that delves into the cross-cultural trends of Geelong.

Geelong will be the third and final regional centre to host White Night this year, following Bendigo earlier this month and Ballarat in March.

Over 60,000 people flocked to both the Ballarat and Bendigo events this year with the Ballarat event generating more than $5 million for the local economy – similar results are expected for Geelong.

White Night Geelong will take place on Saturday 13 October 2018 from 7:00pm and run until 2:00am. For more information on the program and to start planning your night visit whitenight.com.au/geelong.


Father’s Day in Geelong

Dennys Fathers Day Geelong

Planning a special Father’s Day lunch for Dad this year? We are located in Central Geelong and have the perfect day planned for you and the whole family!

Dennys is the place to be this Fathers’ Day as we celebrate Dads’ all over Geelong and beyond with an abundance of awesome food and delicious wine!

Our incredible chefs have designed our freshest and most moreish menu yet, so why not spoil Dad with our set menu lunch option? Accompanied by a complementary Peroni!

We’ve even got his gift sorted with a Dennys Kitchen gift voucher to suit any budget in mind!!

Does this sound familiar…

You: “I’m hungry.”

Dad: “Hi hungry, I’m Dad.”

Whilst you might all be shuddering with distaste at all the dorky Dad jokes you’ve heard (or maybe admiring at how funny you are), this one is still by far our favourite ‘Dad joke’ of all.

It’s that time of year again, Father’s Day—a day to remember all the burnt sausages, flannelette shirts and botched home reno projects. However, I feel like Dads cop a fair bit of flack when it comes to the first Sunday in September, and we don’t give it as much meaning as it ought to.

Anyone can be a Father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad. Our Dads taught us respect, accountability and hard work. They taught us everything from how to tie shoelaces and master that footy kick! In fact, we can thank our Dads for being the voice of reason in our heads when we are about to do something a bit risky. We can thank our Dads for what and where we are today.

And on that note, sit back and relax! We’ve got the day planned for you so, enjoy our hospitality whilst taking a moment to remember all the things that Dads have done for all of us.

Thanks Dad, we love you!!
