It could be argued that good food – and an exceptional dining experience – make Melbourne’s heart beat. So how have pandemic-induced changes to the restaurant industry affected the rhythm of our city’s dining culture?
Join three of Melbourne’s most beloved restaurateurs, Hana Assafiri of Moroccan Soup Bar, Khanh Nguyen of SUNDA _ and Ben Shewry of Attica, for a very special panel discussion that will illuminate the trials and triumphs experienced by restaurateurs throughout lockdown.
While reflecting on the ways that COVID-19 has affected their own iconic businesses – both professionally and personally – Hana, Khanh and Ben will also offer their insights into the pandemic’s effect on the restaurant industry, their thoughts around lockdown approaches taken by other restaurants, their guesses at the impact of COVID-19 on dining in the future, and their feelings about the role that food plays in our lives.
The conversation is followed by a DJ set by DJ Martin Frawley.
