Food Society Launches into Sydney’s Corporate Scene
Food Society, Sydney’s newest catering and dining establishment, saw media, VIP clients and socialites eager to celebrate with co-owners of the new venture, Brendan Lloyd and Sonia Stanojevic.
Check shirted waiters greeted us on the red carpet brandishing Babicka Vodka ‘Applie Pie’ cocktails, Kilakinoon Champagne, La Zonna wines, Zlaty Bazant Beer and Warka Strong to arm us for the treat our tastebuds were in for.
A decadent buffet table full of cheese wheels, meats, breads, olives and pickles created a centrepiece to the room for guests to graze on between offerings of a diverse range of delicious canapés created by Food Society chefs, Richard Slarp and Ben Peterson.
Alex Zobotto-Bentley, Amber Renae, Mike Goldman, Kate Peck, Guy Griffin, Marcus Casey were amongst the interesting crowd inside the 1950’s inspired décor of comfy lounges and rustic furnishings.
Food Society’s aim is to fill the gap in good corporate catering along with utilizing their restaurant space for not only diners but for niche events. Head Event Manager, Darius Grygo, has run events at Wall Street’s Cipriani’s and served famous clients including band, U2. Bar Manager.
Vedran Grozdanic, Food Society’s bar manager, was Gail Kelly’s (CEO of Westpac) main attendant for boardroom functions and recently worked at Sydney’s Opera Bar and the Four Seasons Hotel.
If fortune teller and coffee cup reader, Deniz, who was in attendance at the launch party has it right, Brendan and Sonia are onto something good.
