Taking its cues from your deepest diner daydreams and ramping up the food with the culinary brilliance of an all-Dan chef line-up, with the all-star likes of Dan Hunter (of three-hat regional Victorian trailblazer Brae), Daniel Puskas (from three-hat Sydney restaurant Sixpenny) and Daniel Wilson (from the powerhouse that is Yakimono) leading the charge on the food, this is a diner like you’ve never seen before – the classics with a twist, and then some.

We're talking fried chicken and buttermilk waffles with togarashi maple syrup. We're talking a wagyu patty melt on sourdough with Bloody Mary-spiced crispy onions. We're talking crinkle-cut disco fries with eggplant and chicken gravy, jalapeño, mozzarella and basil. We're talking peach cobbler doughnuts, and a banana split drenched in spiced-rum caramel. We're talking major flavour and epic fun.

And to drink? It wouldn’t be a Dan Murphy’s experience without a mouth-watering array of drinks of all kinds, from crisp cocktails by Daniel Docherty of hit new Collingwood bar Commis, to great Victorian wines, beers and refreshing non-alcs at every price-point.  Drop in at the bar for a coldie, a glass, a Danhattan or a Dan Murphizz at the bar, or settle into a booth with a great bottle for a feast – it’s a party either way.

The Diner opens 12 noon to 9pm for lunch, dinner and drinks every day of the festival.

Staged over the 10 days of at Fed Square, 15 to 24 March, this full-service restaurant and bar will be one of the hottest tables this Festival, a one-off wonderland for anyone interested in great drinks and tasty, tasty eats. Nobody beats Dan Murphy’s on value, and nobody beats Dan’s Diner for good times.
