PROVENANCE FOOD

Provenance Restaurant is situated in Beechworth, North East Victoria.  The restaurant is located in the building that once was the Bank of Australasia. Built in 1856 at the height of the gold rush, the building is grand in design,  The dining rooms still display the grandness of that era with 6m ceilings, ornate rosettes and original arched windows. The vault, built with thick granite blocks, now houses the wine cellar. 

Provenance has been an Age Good Food Guide two chef's hat restaurant for the last 5 years running and is No. 27 in the current  Gourmet Traveller Top 100 Australian Restaurants. The restaurant creates contemporary food from quality regional produce with a focus on seasonal awareness. Michael Ryan's many trips and deep interest in Japan is reflected in the techniques and flavours in the menu.
