It was a battle between the phenomenal wine and cheese pairings, the incredible atmosphere and the delectable taste of Uncorked's gourmet burger. Enticed by the tantalising aromas as soon as one enters, an inviting world of decadence awaits.

This being Uncorked's second time participating in the Gleaner-Sponsored Restaurant Week, owner Anna Kay von Dueszein told Food that every restaurant needs to participate in Restaurant Week.

"Last year was extremely successful for us. Uncorked has become popular for four main reasons: we have the best wine and cheese; we are in a great location; we have a nice vibe for those who want to dine indoor or outdoors; and also, we offer great entertainment," von Dueszein explained.

Also gaining popularity is the gourmet burger, one of its most succulent offerings for this year's Restaurant Week.

Prepared with 100 per cent Angus beef, patrons have the option to choose from bleu, mozzarella or cheddar cheese.

Uncorked will also be offering a vegetarian delight called Napoleon tower. This is a tantalising combination of grilled zucchini, squash, sweet peppers and tomato drizzled with a balsamic reduction.

"We've only just started to serve burgers full-time. We had previously only offered it on Fridays and Saturdays. We decided to incorporate it in this year's Restaurant Week menu to signify the change that we are now offering burgers full-time," she added.

For dessert, patrons can look forward to chocolate mousse and tiramisu to top it off.

"From the delicious gourmet burger to the appetising Napoleon tower, our patrons are sure to love every morsel," von Dueszein added.
