Progressive dinner offers delicious mystery and adventure

Tuesday, 26 February

A popular addition to the Eat the Street food festival launched in 2018 was a progressive dinner, offering food lovers a chance to experience a degustation across five fabulous venues.

The 2019 Eat the Street progressive dinner will be held on the evening of Thursday, 7 March and kicks off with a cocktail and canapes at the Platinum Bar at the Lismore Workers Club.

Diners will then be escorted to Miss Lizzie’s, La Vida and La Baracca to enjoy a course with matching beverage at each venue. The evening will conclude with delicious desserts made by Lismore’s only hatted restaurant, The Loft, under the colourful umbrellas in Club Lane.

“We will have five courses over five spectacular venues, with our diners able to taste some of the finest food currently on offer in Lismore,” Acting City Centre Manager Andrew Walker said.

“This a great night to get a group of friends together for a fun outing. Our diners will be transported in a comfortable coach and waited on at each venue. All you have to do is eat, drink and experience fabulous food from our city’s best restaurants and chefs.”

The 2019 Eat the Street progressive dinner runs from 5.30-9.30pm on Thursday, 7 March and tickets are $130 per person from Tickets are selling fast, so hurry to secure your spot.
