If we could list one of the things we are missing most right now it's dinner dates. The chance to chat, clink glasses, have a wonderful conversation, with a wonderful other over some great restaurant cuisine.
Restaurants aren't quite there yet as people are still a bit tentative about being in groups, even when that clutch of people might be spread out in a larger space. For some, it's just a little too much mingling too soon.
Coming to our aid, Ovolo Hotels has started a great concept called Restaurant in a Room. It's about two people having their own room to dine in - a hotel room.
They started this concept in Canberra a few weeks ago at Nishi Apartments and now it is opening up in Sydney at Ovolo Woolloomooloo, a five-star designer hotel in a heritage building on the wharf with Sydney Harbour views!
Alibi Bar and Kitchen is creating the concept food.
Alibi is a unique cocktail lounge offering innovative cocktails and a plant-based dining menu by renowned US chef, restaurateur, and global pioneer of plant-based cuisine, Matthew Kenney.
Enjoy Matthew Kenny's Kimchi Dumplings, and dishes created in collaboration with Alibi Head Chef Jordan Brogan, like the popular Spicy Udon and Activated Charcoal Ravioli. Not to mention the little touches like sourdough bread, edible flowers, and blended nut cheeses.
It means private dining rooms in hotel rooms on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, or for something even more special, add on an overnight stay.
