Melbourne is known for being a food-lover’s paradise and the Victorian capital has more than its fair share of cutting-edge restaurants. However, there is one particular team of chefs and restauranteurs that is dominating the food scene in Melbourne. They are Adam D’Sylva, Mykal Bartholomew and Kate Bartholomew, and between them they run the two hatted restaurants, Coda and Tonka.
D’Sylva, co-owner and head chef of Coda and Tonka, is an awarding-winning chef with extensive experience in the industry. Influenced by his mother, who was a passionate chef, D’Sylva says that food was at the core of his Indian and Italian upbringing.
