Imagine a night filled with eats from 40 of Melbourne's hottest culinary names, free-flowing local booze and a healthy serve of revelry. Now, that's what we call a birthday party. And you're invited to join in the fun, when Eat Street Melbourne celebrates its 20th anniversary edition later this month.

It's descending upon the Sofitel on Collins on Tuesday, May 21, for an extravagant hawker-style affair, to raise much-needed funds for children's charity Variety. And it's bringing some pretty high-profile hospitality friends along for the ride.

Tickets to this shindig are priced at $135. Which sounds steep — but this includes bottomless eats and drinks throughout the evening, and all proceeds go the charity. And these are some serious party snacks. There'll be a oyster shucking station, buttery serves of 400 Gradi's legendary cacio e pepe (which is served out of a cheese wheel), foie gras and chicken liver parfait doughnuts courtesy of The Botanical, and wagyu and bacon cheeseburger spring rolls served up by Red Spice Road. Andrew McConnell's bringing his Cumulus Inc stracciatella with sweet & sour peppers, while Le Petit Gateau's crew of pastry chefs will reimagine the birthday cake as a series of lavish party treats inspired by childhood classics.

The drinks situation won't be too shabby either, featuring the likes of rosé from Yarra Valley winery True Colours, De Bortoli bubbles and classic cocktails by The Everleigh Bottling Co.

If you fancy making a real night of it, the hotel is also offering staycation packages, starting at $650 for a plush room and Eat Street entry for two adults.
