When popular Crows Nest haunt The Red Centre closed down suddenly in late 2007, it was hard to imagine that a new eatery could match its reputation. However, with MuMu Grill opening on the site in early 2008, the signs were promising. Choose from three seating areas – funky high-rise stools at the bar, elegant honey-wood tables in the main dining area, or heated outdoor bench-style seating. The adjoining pizza kitchen –MuMu Pizza – carries on the tradition set by the site’s former occupant, but what really makes MuMu unique is its grill.
If its quirky name doesn’t hint to you that beef is a menu mainstay, then a glance at the walls, where you’ll find Warhol-esque prints of cattle, will quickly get the message across. Specialising in grass-fed beef and sustainable produce, meat-lovers can choose from King Island rump with roast garlic mustard, Szechuan pepper-crusted prime rib, and beef fillet wrapped in sage and prosciutto. There’s also a good-looking selection of chicken and seafood dishes, along with a tapas menu that makes for a great introduction to the main course. A comprehensive wine list and an express lunch menu gives MuMu Grill all the elements of a real crowd pleaser.
Mumu’s inside dining area holds up to 80 people seated and 120 people cocktail-style. The covered outdoor dining area can hold up to 60 people seated with two separate spaces catering for 40 people and 20 people simultaneously, and up to 100 people cocktail. The bar area is the perfect cocktail spot for up to 40 people. Mumu Grill now has a private dining room which accommodates a maximum of 20 guests on one long elegant table or 3 tables of 8.
