Dinner at Wilson and Market
Wednesday 23 May
Two heavyweight chefs, one fiery six-course meal – one of Sydney’s best restaurants is heading south for one night only.
From his acclaimed restaurant in the backstreets of Sydney’s Surry Hills, Firedoor chef Lennox Hastie is headed to South Yarra.
Hastie will be joining chef Paul Wilson at his Wilson and Market restaurant, to put on a one-night-only six-course dinner on Wednesday May 23, from 7pm.
UK-born Hastie is known for his fascination with fire and started his career in Michelin-starred restaurants across Europe. He opened Firedoor in 2011 to showcase his skillful wood-fired cooking.
Wilson shares Hastie’s passion for flames, as well as seasonal, organic produce and sustainable seafood. His luxe eatery and bar shows off years of experience in Melbourne's best kitchens.
Each chef will create three courses, with a menu that will include special dry-aged beef rib; grilled pipis with beach herbs; octopus with grilled radicchio; orange-roasted mackerel with puntarella; cherry wood-grilled quail with house pomegranate figs and sweet sausage; and chocolate parfait with chestnut dulce de leche and spiced quince for dessert.
Wines from Port Phillip Estate will be paired with the meal. Tickets are $120 for six courses or $220 for six courses plus beverages.
