Delfino Aperitivo #64 — Restaurant Hubert

The best aperitivo hour in the country is taking on a distinctly French look (and taste) for Bastille Day. On Sunday, July 14, Surry Hills' Dolphin Hotel is teaming up with super-popular CBD spot Restaurant Hubert for an afternoon of French snacks and wines — all for just $5–7 a pop.

While there's no word yet on exactly what you'll be eating, Chef James MacDonald will be whipping up some opulent Hubert-esque snacks — so, expect lots of butter, some caviar or escargots, and possibly even the famed Malakoff (fried cheese) to make an appearance. If you keep an eye on The Dolphin's Instagram on Sunday, you might catch a glimpse of the final menu before it goes live.

For drinks, Hubert's acclaimed sommelier Andy Tyson will be teaming up with The Dolphin's Wine Director James Hird to create a list of impressive (and very reasonably priced) French drops. To up the French vibes even further, 'The Huberts' big brass band will be in the house playing appropriately patriotic party tunes throughout the afternoon.

The $5–7 snacks and glasses of wine will only be available from 5–7pm in The Dolphin's Wine Room so get there early — it will fill up.

If you miss the happy hour(s), fear not — the whole venue will be getting into the spirit across the whole weekend (July 12–14) with a one-off French cocktail menu (heavy on chartreuse, calvados and pastis) upstairs at Scout and a slew of French drops available at all the bars.

Prepare to be a bit dusty on Monday, folks, it's going to be a big one.
