It’s European summer right now and if you can’t hop on a plane to Italy this year—and your feed is flooded with glorious Italy happy snaps—we have the next best thing. Aperol, Italy’s iconic drink of choice, is turning the ripe old age of 100 and to celebrate, Fratelli Fresh has launched a month-long Italian extravaganza so you can ‘live as the Italians do’ right here in Sydney.
Throughout July, Fratelli Fresh is serving up a mouth-watering deal of two Aperol Spritz and marinated olives for just $19.19—an ode to the year our favourite aperitif was born. Picture you and your mates kicking back at the bar, soaking up those Italian vibes while sipping on a few delicious Aperol Spritz. Sounds pretty good, right? But it doesn’t stop there.
If you have a hankering for authentic carb-heavy Italian, Fratelli Fresh’s 100 Year Table Lunch is where you want to be. Inspired by the birthplace of Aperol, the four-course menu is a heavenly smorgasbord of flavours with two hours of Aperol Spritz, beer and wine. First up, marinated sardines with onion, raisins and pine nuts, and crunchy cod brandade crostinis. For mains, think generous, share-worthy portions of droolworthy squid ink risotto and Italian-style chicken with Venetian potatoes. To top it all off, sweet pastry fritters with Aperol sorbet—we repeat. Aperol sorbet.
It’s the Italian spread to end all Italian spreads. And it goes without saying, Fratelli Fresh has become a household name when it comes to fresh produce and Italian fine food, so you know you're in good hands. Tickets to the 100 Year Table Lunch are limited so be sure to nab a seat soon. If Venetian-style dishes and refreshing Aperol Spritz doesn’t get you in the mood for Italian, we don’t know what will.
