What better way to ring in the longest night of the year than with a lavish feast, shared among friends, while the winter moonlight dances off the Yarra in the background? That's the very scene that awaits you at Fatto's Winter Soulstice dinner — held on the winter solstice — this Thursday, June 22.
The Italian bar and eatery's cheery riverside digs will be transformed for the occasion, bathed in candlelight as diners indulge in a Euro-inspired four-course feast by Head Chef James Kummrow.
Clocking in at $60 per person, the spread features a lineup of winter-perfect dishes, including woodfired albacore tuna teamed with smoked yogurt, confit grapefruit and roast onion; fresh parmesan gnocchi with a pork and fennel ragu; and spiced quince and marsala tart to finish.
Drinks are not included in the price, but there will be plenty of wines and beers to choose from, if you feel so inclined.
To reserve your spot at the dinner, head to the Fatto website.
