Set to be the biggest and most exciting yet, this year’s National Barramundi Day on Friday 21 October will see 100 restaurants around Australia offer a menu of delicious and creative barra dishes.
At Ace Hotel’s newly opened rooftop restaurant, Kiln, in Sydney, renowned chef Mitch Orr has created a special barramundi menu as well as three recipes for professional and home chefs to try their hand at for the chance to win a visit to an Australian barramundi farm. Orr will be selecting the best barra dish, with 100 dishes already submitted for him to review.
For those that prefer dining to cooking, there will be plenty of options to try a range of dishes championing the sustainably Australian farmed fish. Restaurants where the specials will be served include Sydney’s Catalina Rose Bay and Lana Hinchcliff House, Melbourne’s Florentino by Guy Grossi, Perth’s Cooee and Noosa Waterfront, to name just a few.
Located on the 18th floor of Ace Hotel in Surry Hills, Kiln is one of Sydney’s most exciting new openings. The restaurant features a glass-walled main dining room and two expansive outdoor terraces with retractable roof. Paying homage to the location’s history as Australia’s first discovered pottery kiln, the woodfire restaurant has an open kitchen and wood-fired hearth, offering diners a view of the culinary theatrics.
With a resume boasting the likes of Duke Bistro, ACME and Pilu, chef Mitch Orr has been appointed chef partner and has created a seasonally-changing, internationally inspired menu that showcases the best regional produce, meats and seafood and dishes designed to share.
Private dining option for up to 52 people are available.
