It’s a meaty affair for Father’s Day at oh-so-stylish Mode Kitchen & Bar. Treat dad to a signature grass-fed dry-aged steak, cooked to perfection with a glorious smoky finish in their wood-fired oven. Designed to share, this three-course feast comes with starters, sides and a delicious dessert. As an added bonus, 10 lucky fathers will be in with a chance of winning a steak masterclass experience with Head Chef Francesco Mannelli.
Set inside Hilton Sydney, this upscale eatery is famous for its degustation menus, and the Father’s Day seven-course shared menu is an absolute treat. Dad will be spoilt for choice with wagyu bresaola carpaccio, signature prawn toast, rib eye and chocolate pannacotta. Book your seat from 12:45pm for $79pp. If you don’t like sharing, the a la carte menu will be available too.
