Four top chefs to host pop-up restaurants at the Australian Open 2018

The AO Chef Series will see Angela Hartnett (London restaurant Murano), Peter Gilmore (Sydney’s Quay and Bennelong), Alejandro Saravia (Melbourne’s Pastuso) and Jake Nicolson (Blackbird Bar & Grill, Brisbane) create exclusive menus for a series of pop-up restaurants at The Glasshouse.

Angela Hartnett from London restaurant Murano will join the first AO Chef Series in Melbourne.

Australian Open head of onsite revenue Enda Cunningham said the first AO Chef Series is shaping up to be a “spectacular addition to the precinct”.

“Personally I am looking forward to once again working with Angela Hartnett, having worked together at Gordon Ramsay,” he said.

Peter Gilmore of Sydney’s Quay and Bennelong restaurants.

“We continue to build new experiences to complement the Australian Open, which is now truly one of the world’s biggest sports and entertainment events.”

Hartnett will serve up a five-course degustation menu, based on the offerings from her award-winning London restaurant, featuring seasonal Australian food with an Italian accent.

Alejandro Saravia of Melbourne restaurant Pastuso.

“I always cook at Wimbledon, so love the tennis side, but the real selling point is the fabulous food in Melbourne which I cannot wait to eat,” she said.

“We will be bringing Murano to Melbourne. It’s 10 years old next year so we are putting a menu together that really shows what Murano is about.”

Gilmore will also host a five-course degustation dinner, showcasing a selection of Quay’s signature dishes in Melbourne for the first time.

Jake Nicolson from Brisbane’s Blackbird Bar & Grill.

Saravia will showcase the produce of regional Gippsland in the first edition of his pop-up Farmer’s Daughters, all matched with local wines.

Returning to his home turf, Nicolson will create a four-course degustation menu featuring seasonal Australian produce.

The restaurants will be popping up throughout January. Tickets can be booked online.
