Dan's Diner

Federation Square
Melbourne, 3000

Tickets for this event have now sold out, but you can try Daniel Puskas's other dishes at the Diner every other day of the festival.

Talk about talent. Daniel Puskas pulled off the transition from skateboard-toting young-gun to respected peer Australian fine-dining more or less seamlessly, working his way through top-flight Sydney restaurants such as Tetsuya’s, Marque and Sepia before opening Sixpenny, the 35-seat restaurant in Stanmore that won him three hats in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide, and has seen him recognised as one of the leading kitchen talents in the country.

For his Dan's Diner takeover, Daniel is tapping into the Italian side of his heritage, which in the Diner translates to an Italo-American menu packed with flavour and loaded for good times.

You'll enjoy a cocktail designed by Dan Docherty from Collingwood bar of the moment Commis on arrival, and to take care of the rest of your refreshment needs for the rest of the evening, the Dan Murphy's team has curated a mouth-watering range of other drinks, all available for purchase, from local beers and spirits to cocktails and wine.

You can bet it's not gonna be just like Nonna used to make it, but you're going to love it.
