The Golden Hour

The Golden Hour

On Wednesday night we went to The Golden Hour at Mona with Nick’s Family:

The Golden Hour

Communal dining at Mona, brought to you by our Executive Sous Chef Vince Trim. Soak up sunset courtesy of James Turrell’s rooftop spectacular, Amarna (2015), then retire to the Wine Bar for some top-notch tucker and flirty banter with the stranger on your left.

You arrive at 6:45pm to a glass of bubbles to compliment your oysters, before you are seated at a long communal (marble) table in the Wine Bar.  Followed by introductions to our neighbours on either side – a Climatologist from Hobart and a bunch of his friends from the States and on the other, a Frenchman with his Singaporean bride in Tasmania on their honeymoon.  An adjacent table were hosting a film crew from China, so the evening certainly had an international flavour, reminding me once again of the ‘Mona Effect‘ and the drawcard this museum in the northern suburbs, has become.

After an amazing entrée of Moo Brew Stout-cured and smoked ocean trout, asparagus, freekah & pickled basil we were ushered, drink in hand, to enjoy James Turrell’s light installation on dusk.  Sitting on the heated seats and marveling at the changing colours above us, we huddled back inside to enjoy the rest of our amazing meal.

It really is a fantastic concept – one where you feel you are having a private dinner party, meeting new people and eating fantastic food, yet without the worry of washing up!  It truly was a ‘Golden Hour’ … or two or three!  xx
