Graffiti lunch at the Sofitel
Time Out says
You won't be able to stop taking photos of your plate at this street-art inspired lunch
Blurring the line between art and food, the Sofitel’s brand new lunch offering brings graffiti to your table. All the waitstaff at luxe in-house restaurant No35 will be armed not just with superior culinary knowledge, but now also with edible graffiti sprays to inscribe your plate with something funky. Yep, it’s 2020 and you can now eat your social commentary.
Inspired by street-art masters Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, this lunch experience is a little special, a little out of the ordinary – just like the two artists’ Crossing Lines exhibition over at the NGV. It also pays homage to their use of New York as the ultimate muse: think all-American classics like fresh, juicy lobster rolls, oozy calzones, and a velvety New York cheesecake.
Good art should cross boundaries, and here, it crosses over all the way onto your plate with designs from street art consultants 90 Degrees. Before you begin eating, waiters will take over your plate and have some street-art inspired fun with their graffiti spray using the designs conceptualised by 90 Degrees.
Head over for a graffitied lunch from 12pm every Thursday and Friday from March 12 to April 13 at The Sofitel’s No35. You’ll get two courses and a glass of wine for $55 per person.
