Instead of having to scoff down your creme brûlée and rush off to that impending gig, Britomart’s Ostro are bringing the entertainment table-side for a full-blown dining experience.
On the second Sunday of the month from June to September, the establishment are inviting a selection of top local musicians to perform intimate concerts while you dine. Matter-of-factly named 'Dinner and a Show', each event will be split into two halves. The waterfront perched Ostro Brasserie will set the scene for dinner and the first set, before the second round takes place across the other side of the building in the more relaxed City Terrace.
MasterChef judge and Michelin-starred chef Josh Emett will work his magic in the kitchen, putting together a three-course menu for each event, and one of the dishes will be co-designed by the performer of the night.
Barnaby Weir is a prolific songwriter and musician. As well as being the frontman of Wellington roots group The Black Seeds, he finds time to write and record under his own name and with The Dub Connection, The Verbs and Flash Harry. He’s also the brainchild behind New Zealand music collective Fly My Pretties.
Weir will provide the dining soundtrack alongside a few of his friends at Ostro’s ‘Dinner and a Show’ in July.
