For the first time ever, Vivid Sydney is hosting a dinner. The menu is co-curated by Mr Wong’s Dan Hong and Totti’s Mike Eggert. It’s going to be a feast for the senses with a fusion of light, music, ideas, and creative cuisine planned for the one-night-only event.

Sydney is all about great food, music, wine, and good times, so the dinner is only fitting. Held in the Ivy Ballroom, diners will be treated to a bespoke local menu, boasting local produce.

Expect to find Hong’s signature Cantonese influences in the coastal sashimi platter and mixed herb salad with ginger, chilli, and roasted brussel sprouts. Eggert’s flare for Italian, coastal cuisine can be found in the canapes, beef cheek main and Burraduc buffalo yogurt panna cotta.

“My family and I look forward to attending Vivid Sydney each year to take-in the Light Walk and see a few Music gigs. So working with Mike to create a bespoke menu for the first-ever Vivid Sydney Dinner has been a special experience for myself and the whole Merivale family,” said Hong.

“Dan and I created a menu that will really put NSW-produce in the spotlight. The coastal waters and rivers of NSW are just brimming with incredible seafood – I love that you can go diving for sea urchins just off Wollongong. We’ve also included a local buffalo cheese from the Barrington Coast and some incredible mushrooms grown in disused railway tunnels in the Southern Highlands,” said Eggert.

The dinner will take place on Saturday, June 4, at 6:30pm. Tickets cost $256.40 per person and can be purchased here.
