Some Of Sydney’s Most Iconic Restaurants Have Started Delivering Meal Boxes To Your Door

One of Sydney’s top bar and restaurant groups has launched a new home delivery service, so that you can make your favourite dishes in your own kitchen. Merivale’s new ‘Merivale At Home‘ service will deliver boxes full of fresh produce to your door, starting from today.

If you’re not familiar with Merivale, you probably know some of the top bars and restaurants that they run — they’re the team behind Mr. Wong, Totti’s, Bert’s Bar & Brasserie, Fred’s and Vinnie’s Pizza, and heaps more.

The new at-home dining service will allow Sydney residents to order boxes full of all the ingredients you need to whip-up a restaurant quality dinner for two at home. And according to Merivale, you don’t need to be a Masterchef to throw the meals together — they’ll arrive “nearly ready to eat”, and all you’ll need to do is put on the finishing touches, so even a novice chef can get in on the action.

The new service also comes with an at-home sommelier. The Merivale team has hand-picked the best wines and cocktails to match your chosen dishes, and you’ll be able to order them with your meals. The meal boxes themselves are running for $75 to $90 to get a meal for two, and you can pick up some drinks for between $40 and $115.

On top of the carefully curated menu boxes, you’ll also be able to order produce boxes, full of top quality meats, seafood, fruit and veg. And they’ll come complete with a list of weekly recipe suggestions from top chef  Danielle Alvarez.

Merivale CEO Justin Hemmes said the coronavirus crisis had given him the final push needed to launch the service: “Merivale At Home has been in the works for a while now, but we haven’t had the time to bring it to life. Now, with our regular operations on hold due to government restrictions, and our chefs and sommeliers craving new creative outlets, we have been able to fast-track the launch and deliver it at a time when our guests need it most. We’re thrilled that we can keep being a part of their lives and bring the best of Merivale to their homes”.
