Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch or Dinner?
Dinner that never ends. Ever!
Where will you be dining?
On the whole planet, I am in Love with a Tapas bar in Melbourne’s little Collins street called Bar Louhrinah. The food is sublime and melts in your mouth, but also the food arrives as tapas does with waves of dishes and delicious flavours.They have the best red wines and I always always start with a Cappuccino Martini and order a few!! I can see myself there now and it is all open space and communal tables raised at bar level. I crave the place when I am in New York. I am a Sydney boy, but this experience has my name on it in capital letters. Food, atmosphere and cocktail heaven in the way that ONLY Melbourne can do and does… look at me, talk about getting carried away!
What music are you listening to?
Generations of Love, a Boy George classic and from the musical Annie… ‘The sun will come out tomorrow’.
What are you wearing?
A beautiful, classic black tie suit, probably from Hugo Boss or Ted Baker. A button down black Armani shirt and a silver Theory tie. Black lace-up shoes and a smile on my face. If this is it, then may as well go smiling I say!
