Don’t know WATT to do for Mother’s Day?

  • Food & Booze
She watched you take your first steps, held your hand on your first day of school and over-dramatically clutched the side of the car as she taught you to drive. Mums are pretty great. For most of the year our maternal interaction involves a lot of eye rolling and tongue biting, but deep down we all know that there’s nothing we wouldn’t do for our dear old mothers. This Mother’s Day treat your mum to a meal that’s as special as she is with WATT’S Mother’s Day Shared Feast! This year WATT is treating our mums to a feast fit for a Queen. What better way to say ‘sorry for putting you through the agony of child rearing’ like a decedent 3-course meal with a side of river views. With eight seating’s available between 12pm and 3:30pm, there’s no excuse not to lock in your spot at this truly unique dining experience. For $65 a ticket ($14 for children), you and the fam will have your pick from a variety of entrées, mains and desserts. Just to give you a taste of what’s on offer, options include a Farmer’s Kitchen charcuterie with jamon Serrano, wagyu bresaola, cacciatore salami, spiced chorizo, piccalilli, marinated olives, chicken liver parfait, gorgonzola and charred focaccia (and that’s just one of the appetisers, they weren’t kidding when they said feast), and for the main event we’ve got our eye on the whole NZ squire with radish, lemon and sorrel. So book your tickets here for a Mother’s Day mum will never forget. She’ll feel very loved and appreciated and you’ll score some major brownie points you can cash in next time you need help with your laundry. Everyone wins.
