Chinatown restaurant to host Australia’s Alpha Box & Dice for a culture clash winemakers dinner on June 20
The intimate evening will be hosted by the dynamic duo of Dylan and Justin Fairweather, whose laid-back Aussie attitudes and love for the unusual led to the founding of Alpha Box & Dice. The brothers’ winery won internationally acclaim for its “The Alphabet of Wine” — the construction a different wine style to represent each letter of the alphabet. (In case you’re wondering, they’ve just put the finishing touches on number 17.)
Mamie Taylor’s Chef Jeff Koop, who helped to open Sydney’s award-winning Deadringer Restaurant and Bar in 2015, has designed a five-course pairing menu that’s as fun, bold and brash as the wines to be poured.
Tickets are $70 per person (tax and tip included) and only 20 seats will be released to the public. Tickets are available online at Eventbrite.
