The Blue Door on 5th
The Blue Door on 5th is the latest addition to the Palm Beach dining scene, recently taking over the space occupied by the long-standing Pablo Pablo eatery on Fifth Avenue. Former Fins restaurant head chef Dylan Cashman is the brains behind the exciting new eatery, which puts a relaxed spin on fine dining. Local produce is a big driver in Dylan’s kitchen. Every ingredient used here comes from farms between Brunswick and Stanthorpe, as well as whatever Dylan and his chefs manage to find on their regular foraging trips around Kingscliff. Basically, whatever is available in the best quality on the day will be on the menu, which means the food line-up will change regularly. The beer is kept local, with the likes of small-batch Kempsey brewer Bucket Brewery on tap, alongside a predominately organic and natural wine list. Like the food menu, the wine selection has been put together with genuine passion and understanding, with a shine to minimal-intervention producers like Joshua Cooper and Shobbrook Wines. The Blue Door on 5th’s menu, bottle list, location and laid-back vibe is bringing fine dining back down to earth.
