Have Dan Hong, Danielle Alvarez and Mike Eggert Over For Dinner

The contemporary culinary stars offering a new home-dining experience.

By Terry Christodoulou 07/04/2020

Billionaire Justine Hemmes’ dominant Sydney hospitality group, Merivale, has launched a new service delivering restaurant dining, drinking and produce boxes to your door.

Merivale At Home covers some of Sydney’s most well-loved (and missed) restaurants, namely Mr. Wong, Totti’s, Bert’s Bar & Brasserie, Fred’s and Vinnie’s Pizza. And it means cooking kits from the likes of hospitality heavyweight’s Dan Hong, Danielle Alvarez, Jordan Toft Mike Eggert and more.

Inside each home-dining box are the ingredients needed to whip up those various signature dishes that have now been missing from our lives for a few weeks – think Mr. Wong’s special fried rice; fresh pappardelle, lamb ragu from Totti’s; prime rib from Bert’s Bar & Brasserie.

Each kit ranges from $70-$95 for two. And the new offering doesn’t end with food, with some accompanying drinks packages available ($40-$115). These have been curated by Merivale sommelier Franck Moreau and award-winning bars manager Sam Egerton and cover pre-made aperitifs and cocktails and some spirited wines.

“This has been in the works for a while now, but we haven’t had the time to bring it to life,” offers Hemmes. “Now, with our regular operations on hold due to government restrictions, and our chefs and sommeliers craving new creative outlets, we have been able to fast-track the launch and deliver it at a time when our guests need it most.”

Seafood Merivale

The new venture looks to support the supply-chain that’s also left in limbo – Merivale providing customers access to various suppliers and produce boxes from well-known distributors such as Havericks (premium meats), Parisi (veg) and Poulos Brothers (seafood).

Merivale At Home aligns with the takeaway offering that’s been running at Totti’s Bondi for a month.
