Australia’s most prestigious portrait prize is currently showing at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. To make your visit even more special Chiswick at the Gallery are serving up a custom menu to accompany the exhibition, with a main, dessert, a glass of wine or beer plus one ticket to the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes for $72 per person. You'll get to beat the queue and enjoy either lunch or dinner in the light-filled surrounds of Chiswick at the Gallery.

Mains include grilled spatchcock with pumpkin, pine nut, ginger and sage; or seared Cone Bay barramundi with heirloom carrots and tarragon. For dessert pick between Valrhona chocolate with tonka bean, hazelnut and espresso; or rhubarb with coconut sticky rice and kaffir lime. Then cap it off with a glass of Tertini Hilltops Riesling, Tertini Central Ranges Shira or a James Boag.  

Once you've finished with your meal, head into the exhibition where you can see the divisive and colourful collection of paintings. This year's line-up (the 96th for the prize) features 43 portraits, culled from 822 entries, featuring faces familiar and not, by big name, mid-career and emerging painters. Then head over to the Wynne and Sulman Prize exhibitions – the former for landscape painting or figurative sculpture, the latter for subject painting, genre painting or mural art. You can also see the Young Archie, which features portraits by pint-sized artists between the ages of 5 and 18.
