The brainwave of celebrity chef and author Silvena Rowe, Omnia Gourmet aces the trifecta of tasty, raw and vegan dishes, all the while nailing meatier options that keep carnivores happy. Sitting an arm's length away from the port's waters, diners can tuck into Rowe's dishes like zucchini linguine with avocado pesto and cashew-nut raw cotta or orange blossom glazed chicken. To finish opt for the divine gluten- and sugar-free velvet raspberry cheesecake. Not a bad way to spend a spring afternoon.
