For those unversed in the glory of bitter Italian cocktails, National Negroni Week kicks off next Monday 4 June and rollicks until Friday 10 June. Everyone’s gearing up but one place in particular has our fullest, most buxom attention. Yes, the charcuterie wizards themselves down at Salt Meats Cheese are getting right into the spirit with a big ol' shindig kicking off from 4pm next Tuesday 5 June.
On the pasta menu is a wintery lamb leg ragu pappardelle, a butter and sage ravioli, a gorgonzola gnocchi, and a heartwarming mushroom risotto that’ll get your cockles buzzing for just $10 a plate. The best deal? Whole pizzas—including a margherita, a spicy salami number, and a cheese and truffle fiasco—will be flying off the stone for just $5. That’s less than a box of spanners!
Knock it all back with an $8 Negroni (ice cold and on tap all week) and bliss out to some live beats from Josh Lovegrove.
What: $5 pizzas at Salt Meats Cheese
