Renowned Melbourne chef, Andrew McConnell is taking over NGV’s Garden Restaurant and turning it into a pop-up restaurant, Supernormal Natsu, as part of 10-day festival event titled, Triennial EXTRA.
Created as a week to showcase their current exhibition, Triennial EXTRA, is a one-off, 10-day festival (19-28 January 2018) to feature a range of dance, music, performance, guest DJs, among many other events, to celebrate the inaugural Triennial exhibition.
Supernormal Natsu, follows-up Andrew McConnell’s hugely popular, Supernormal restaurant in Flinders lane. Open for ten days, Supernormal Natsu will provide a new and exclusive summer menu, influenced by its older restaurant sibling.
The pop-up will have an exclusive summer menu for NGV diners, and will have the same pan-Asian influences of Supernormal. Diners will be treated to an evocative culinary experience, celebrating the smells, tastes and sounds of summer – ‘Natsu’ means summer in Japanese. The restaurant will have a Japanese hibachi grill and guests will be able to order grilled meats and seafood, complemented by the finest summer ingredients. Specialty vegetable dishes will also be on offer with a selection of summery shaved icesfor desserts.
NGV Director, Tony Ellwood says Andrew McConnell is a great choice for a restaurant-exhibition collaboration. “Andrew McConnell is one of Australia’s most renowned chefs and an innovator of the culinary arts. His pioneering approach to food and dining makes him the perfect fit for the Triennial EXTRA festival and our first Triennial exhibition.’
Triennial EXTRA will over ten-days host the city’s largest presentation of contemporary art and design events. Surrounding the works of more than 100 artists on show for Triennial, Triennial EXTRA hosts a range of dance performances, guest DJ line-ups, and wealth of events to set the scene in Melbourne.
