He was on MasterChef a couple of nights ago, he opened Chiswick only months earlier and last night, he launched a new role for ARIA Catering. Matt Moran certainly has written the recipe for success. With partner Peter Sullivan by his side, and with the twinkling Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background, the duo last night announced that ARIA is now the exclusive resident caterer at Sydney Opera House.
To celebrate this new role for ARIA, we headed to the Opera Point Marquee and spent the evening sampling canapés and hot dishes from the live cooking stations.
A harpist elegantly played soft tunes in the centre of the marquee, while guests took turns dining at the mini restaurant set-up (complete with timers on each table so that all could get a ‘live restaurant’ experience).
It was a beautiful evening, smoothly run by the ever-efficient team at The Cru. As we left, guest were given a goodie bag which contained, two ARIA-embossed Riedel champagne flutes. With our gift in hand, the Best Restaurant team decided that it was our duty to head home, fill our flutes and clink our ARIA-studded glasses to Matt and Peter’s success.
