Melbourne Cup Luncheon & Fashion Parade at Ristorante Fellini
Punters, foodies and fashionistas can revel in Ristorante Fellini’s Cup Carnival atmosphere on November 5 when the award-winning Italian restaurant hosts its legendary Melbourne Cup Luncheon from noon.
Three delicious courses of Fellini’s award-winning Italian cuisine will elevate an action-packed afternoon of world-class horse races on the big screens, designer fashion parades, a best dressed competition and sweepstake fun against the picturesque backdrop of Gold Coast’s Broadwater.
The festivities begin at midday with pane casereccio; a warm loaf of homemade bread with extra virgin olive oil, roasted garlic and aged balsamic vinegar for dipping. A delightful mix of entrées will follow, which include prosciutto e mousse di parmigiano, calamari e finocchio and a caprese salad.
Head chef Richard Burt has selected three mains from which diners will choose from filetto di manzo – chargrilled south Australian Coorong beef tenderloin, salmone alla griglia – crispy skinned grilled Atlantic salmon fillet or saltimbocca di pollo – free range chicken breast.
Dessert is a smooth panna cotta al limone – lemon panna cotta served on a strawberry compote with freeze-dried berries and mint. Tickets are only $75 per person, phone to book a table on 5531 0300.
