The Art Of Dining

Here’s one the artsy types will love: Mister Bianco is offering up an experimental multi-course meal, each one modelled after works of art by local artist Saren Dobkins. What’s best about it is that one of the five courses will be served in the dark with the relevant art piece illuminated, giving you a sensory experience. Sensory deprivation sounds very Christian Grey, but on this occasion, we’ll roll with it.

You can find these bad boys at the Newmarket Hotel for just $5 on Wednesdays. 

What: $5 Woodfired Pizzas 
Where: Newmarket Hotel 34 Inkerman St, St Kilda, Victoria 3182
