Molo Bistecca Night
Molo at Manta is reinventing itself as a New York steakhouse for one-night only.
Molo at Manta is veering away from its usual Italian fare and reinventing itself as a New York steakhouse for one night. At 7pm on Thursday, May 27, the Woolloomooloo waterfront bar will be serving up a set menu full of tender meat, classic Sunday roast-style sides and a touch of fresh seafood.
Co-owner Riccardo Bernabei dreamt up the idea from his love of steakhouses and his time living in New York. The set menu is designed to combine the tastes of a steakhouse with the classic Italian bistecca fiorentina. The centrepiece of the four-course menu will be one kilogram of said bistecca fiorentina served with Molo's house-made steak sauce. Accompanying the meat will be creamed spinach, roasted rosemary and garlic potatoes as well as an onion, tomato and caper salad.
Before the meat even comes out however, diners will begin the night with crostini culatello and parmigiano, plus clams casino and oysters Rockefeller for starters. To cap off the meal, Molo will serve up pecan pie with whiskey vanilla homemade ice cream.
The Molo team will create a cocktail and wine list that will complement the hearty set menu, however drinks are not included in the $145 per person price tag and must be purchased separately on the night.
