Valentine’s Day at The Old Fitz
Tuesday the 14th of February
The Old Fitzroy calls all lovers — romantic, platonic, and everything in between — to its intimate Bistro Fitz, for a quaint yet decadent Valentine’s Day banquet, curated and designed by Head Chef Toby Stansfield (ex-Fabricca, Monopole). Playing on whimsy & the playful nature of romance, his special menu looks to fresh and adventurous seasonality as we revel in the final weeks of Summer. Sydney rock oysters with honeydew melon and aleppo pepper; watermelon ceviche; duck breast with barbeque cherry & snow fungus; and an indulgently iconic crepe cake, all featuring in this love-fest of an evening.
In gentle foreplay, a glass of biodynamic French sparkling from the Loire Valley upon arrival. A fulsome wine list is available a la carte, curated by Group Beverage Manager Jordan Blackman (of Odd Culture Group and recently hatted Odd Culture Newtown)
Bookings are essential to secure a spot on this day, with a special Valentine’s banquet menu, crépe cake dessert, and glass of French sparkling on arrival for $100pp. Early lovebirds may be able to score a one-allocation-only seating at the Bistro’s candle-lit Juliet Balcony (does it get more romantic than that?). Hop to it.
