The terms 'Australia's best chefs', 'leading talent' and, our least favourite, 'hot stuff' are thrown around with wild abandon when it comes to big ticket dinners, and we're with you in failing to rise to the bait every single time. But this is different. Different by a country mile. Not only is the Attica team doing some of the most undeniably groundbreaking cooking in Australia right now, but they've decided to put on a dinner that is a collaboration between some of the most intriguing chefs in the country.
We're talking the skills of all-things-Asian-wrapped-in-bacon Dan Hong from Ms G's, Ben "Momofuku" Greeno and Dan Hunter – the man making every pothole on the three-hour drive to the Royal Mail in Dunkeld worth it. Phil Wood, Luke Burgess, David Moyle, James Parry, and Daniel Puskas are also bashing the pans and considering eating at each of these chefs' restaurants individually would see you with a bill of about $1500, this $210 dinner is a downright steal.
Run, don't walk. The restaurant is only small, and the draw of these talented gentlemen is mighty.
