Delfino Apertivo with David Moyle of Longsong - Sunday April 8th
David Moyle likes food, fire and doing pop-up dinners at the Dolphin’s Wine Room kitchen. He’s on the mainland, after a successful stint stoking fires at Franklin Restaurant in Hobart. Now based in Melbourne he runs Thai-influenced Longsong, where he still uses fire as his main ingredient. Swing by The Dolphin’s Wine Room on Sunday between 5-7pm for a snack and some special cocktails to mark the occasion.
