MFWF 2019

Each year food and wine lovers in their thousands flock to events that fill Melbourne’s labyrinthine network of restaurants, laneways, lights-turned-down basements and dizzying rooftops.

The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival is all about supporting and cultivating what makes Melbourne – and Chapel Precinct – a gastronomic playground.

Check out which local events in this years festival calendar you just don’t want to miss.
David's Restaurant

For one night only, Chapel Street’s Oriental Teahouse will transform their entire restaurant into a street-food block party. The stand-up event will consist of themed food stations around the venue, with drinks flowing and a DJ playing.

One Night in Shanghai pays homage to the buzzing night-life to be found at the Shanghai night markets, in which a lively lion dance will come out to traverse the stalls midway through the evening.

Thursday 21 March, 7pm – 10pm
$85 per person + booking fee
Location: 455 Chapel St, South Yarra

David's 20th Aniversary_GRIFFIN SIMM_Finals 14

Changing the way we dine, David’s returns with another bottomless communal seafood feast after last year’s sold-out MFWF event.

As a nod to the river village of Old Zhouzhuang, diners will stand around a long banana leaf-lined table filled with wok-fired king prawns, pipis, muscles and oysters, flavoured to perfection with David’s in-house XO sauce. As the chef pours seafood straight from the wok, soak up the juices with steamed mantao buns to make the most of the garlic and chilli juices.

Thursday 14 March, 7pm – 10pm
$120 per person + booking fee
Location: 4 Cecil Pl, Prahran
