Still no plans for Melbourne Cup? There’s a 4 course lunch event for Melbourne Cup with Verve Cliquot until 2.30pm in the ultimate race spectator’s dream.
For those of you not familiar with Panama House, it moved to Campbell Parade earlier this year after five years around the corner on Bondi Road.
It’s the home of the all you can eat ‘Taco Tuesday’ and “Bottomless Brunch” with a new reason to keep local punters and visitors coming back.
Newly appointed Head Chef, Ben Fitton brings the sparkle of Hollywood with him to the new Panama House cooking for Rod Steward, Jerry Seinfeld, Baz Lurhmann and even the King of Spain! A private chef background, his signature techniques and international flavours, extend that star treatment to Panama Patrons over at Bondi Beach. Completely in tune with what Sydneysiders want, his CV boasts the captaining and stints at some of the city’s most beloved venues – The Fish Shop, Café del Mar, Roomtwentyeight, and Macleay Street Bistro, Sean’s Panorama, Fuel Bistro, the MCA Café at the Rocks. A successfult career that started as an apprentice at Bennelong Restaurant as the protoge of Gay Bilson and mentoring of Janni Kyritisis, who are billed as one of Australia’s most innovative chefs.
“I love using local and South American ingredients to create the exciting and unique Latin American menu at Panama House” teases Chef Ben, “Guests should expect the unexpected: vibrant, fresh flavours, herbs, lime, chilli, earthy moles, Peruvian aquachille, pork belly roasted over pineapple and served on a taco, and traditional Mexican street food. The menu is always bursting with an endless combination of flavours, which you simply can’t find anywhere else in Bondi.”
The race will be televised on screens at the event. Prizes for best dressed.
