Meet Merivale At Home, offering delicious at-home dining packages, curated wine packs and produce boxes from the group’s top restaurants.
With Sydney restaurants and cafes pivoting to takeaway-only, we’re all finding ways to adapt to the ‘new normal’. For most of us, that means working from home, switching the gym for virtual workout classes and catching up with our mates over Zoom for Friday night drinks. And for foodies across Sydney, foregoing dining out for staying in has been a tough ask. But, we’ve just found a new service that will make iso a little bit easier.
Say hello to Merivale At Home, the new at-home dining service featuring some of the top restaurants from this hospitality powerhouse. The project has long been in the works but has been fast-tracked in response to the new government regulations in response to COVID-19. In an effort to bring the best of Merivale’s top dining destinations to the homes of Sydneysiders, Merivale At Home enables diners to order delicious dinner and drinks packs plus produce boxes from the likes of Mr. Wong, Totti’s, Bert’s Bar & Brasserie, Fred’s and Vinnie’s Pizza. Uniting the executive chefs from each venue alongside Master Sommelier Franck Moreau and multi-award-winning Group Bars Manager Sam Egerton the service is about as close as we’ll be able to get to dining at one of these top-notch restaurants in the weeks ahead.
Want someone else to do the cooking? Merivale At Home delivers five menus for diners to choose from, featuring a rotating selection of dishes priced at $70-$95 for two. These boxes come nearly ready-to-eat, with home cooks to make the final finishing touches upon delivery. To celebrate launch week, Mr. Wong at Home by Dan Hong will be delivering everything from King prawn wontons in supreme broth to steamed barramundi fillet with white soy, garlic and shallots (as well as plenty of Mr. Wong special fried rice), all for $95 for two. Totti’s at Home by Mike Eggert’s week one menu ($90 for two) will feature the venue’s iconic wood-fired bread along with a selection of antipasti such as burrata, prosciutto, baked eggplant plus fresh pappardelle with lamb ragu and fresh linguine with spinach and herb pesto. Plus, you’ll be able to order a gourmet vegetarian feast from Fred’s at Home by Danielle Alvarez ($80 for two), six delicious dishes from Bert’s Bar & Brasseries at Home by Jordan Toft ($95 for two) plus an Italian extravaganza from Vinnie’s Pizza at Home ($70 for two).
An at-home dining experience wouldn’t be complete with delicious drinks. The Merivale team also has you covered with a selection of drink packs ranging from $40 – $115, depending on your budget. Expect handpicked wines curated by the group’s Master Sommelier (curated to match each menu) as well as pre-batched aperitifs (such as Negronis and Martinis) available to order.
