Cool Sh*t, Eat, Melbourne, Restaurants / 25 May 2023

When two powerhouses collide, magic happens. Celebrated chef Tom Sarafian teams up with Young Hearts, Melbourne’s hottest new venue, for an exclusive pop-up event.

In this enthralling debut partnership, Sarafian, revered for his Middle Eastern inspired culinary wizardry, steps into the vibrant kitchen of Young Hearts. This collaboration merges his love for cooking with a rhythmic backdrop of foot-tapping beats from all-day DJs, setting the stage for a day filled with delectable food and enthralling tunes. A native of the locale, Sarafian’s enthusiastic return promises an experience that is as heartening as it is appetising.

The event offers a refreshing concept that showcases Sarafian’s culinary genius in an effortless, relaxed manner. Attendees will be treated to a stunning array of finger foods that promise big flavours in each bite. The chef’s assurance is that despite the cocktail party setup, the fare will leave no room for hunger. Kebabs, a late-night favourite, will be served right there, along with an array of irresistible offerings.

Nic Coulter, owner of Young Hearts, can hardly contain his excitement about this inaugural collaboration. As a long-time admirer of Sarafian’s artistry, he envisages this event as a fantastic opportunity to throw a high-spirited party, while delighting patrons with Tom’s enticing dishes.


From Sarafian’s signature hummus topped with crab and prawn sauce to sambousek filled with luscious halloumi and akawi cheeses, the menu provides an authentic journey into the Middle Eastern culinary landscape. Additionally, the day promises a special treat in the form of a pop-up hummus shop, enabling guests to take home a piece of the Sarafian gastronomic experience.

For just $75, enjoy a full-course feast and a welcoming martini. But don’t linger too long; spaces are quickly filling up. The event’s two sessions, from noon to 2 pm and 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm, allow you to pick a time that fits your schedule. For further details or to book your spot, click here.
