A twist on tradition: The modern Italian dishes draw from broader European and
Asian influences. "If you're an Italian purist, it's not going to be what you expect," owner
Robert Oliver said.
Save room for dessert: There's plenty for the sweet tooth including panna cotta,
profiteroles and a Haig invention - the strawberry lasagne. Crispy lasagne sheets are filled
with mascarpone and ricotta cream and syrupy strawberries.
Rise and shine: Breakfast is now available at The Haig and the aim is to offer something
different. Start the day with a breakfast pizza or pan-fried banana and caramel brioche.
Just ask: Whether it's gluten or dairy you can't tolerate, The Haig is happy to adjust its
meals to suit your needs. Everything is made in house and easily modified.
Treat your mum: This year, The Haig will celebrate Mother's Day with a special lunch.
The a la carte menu will offer four entrees, four mains and four dessert options.
