The new year brings a few surprises from Ladro…including BRUNCH on weekends starting on 25th January from 9am…mmm wood-oven baked eggs!
COME FEAST WITH US! We like the letter P…it brings us Prosecco Pizza Porchetta …and Peast Pumber Pive…sorry, Feast #5 with our favourite Prosecco Purveyor, Dal Zotto. We love Dal Zotto so much we named a son after the Patriach!
Eat and drink copius and unlimited amounts of Prosecco, Pizza + Porchetta whilst grooving to the phenomenally cool tunes spun by Andras Fox…just in time for some festive Christmas cheer. It’s all part of our 10th Ladro year celebrations!
TUESDAY 17th DEC 6pm – late Ladro Greville – 162 Greville St Prahran $55 ph
A collaborative night of projection, food and wine with Internationally renowned projection artist Yandell Walton. Continuing our 10th birthday celebrations with the 10 x 10 x 10 FEASTS Ladro is very proud to present FEAST #4…
Our white walls will be transformed into an immersive series of projections whilst you enjoy 10 x edible offerings from Ladro chef Darren Mercaldi…responding to Yandell’s amazing work.
Art. Food. Life. It promises to be a dinner unlike any other you have ever experienced and one of the most exciting collaborations of our favourite Ladro friends in the 10 x 10 x 10 FEASTS. As a proud patron of the arts, $40 from every ticket will go directly to the artist. Tickets are very limited so please book quickly to ensure you have a seat.
TUESDAY 12th NOVEMBER 7pm sharp LADRO GERTRUDE – 224 Gertrude St FITZROY $120 ph (10 x dishes) – $40 from every ticket goes directly to artist
Continuing on with our 10th Birthday celebration FEASTS, we are very excited to announce 10 x 10 x 10 FEAST #3…TEA! We have partnered up with the worlds best tea purveyor (in our humble opinion) Storm In A Teacup, who happens to be our neighbour in Smith St and tea supplier.
Storm In A Teacup are serious tea geeks and we are collaborating with them to bring you a 10 x DISH FEAST using tea in every dish. Think tea smoked meats, tea infused panna cotta, edible tea leaf salads and no tea feast would be complete without a tea-tail…or should that be cock-tea’s? Btw, Hannah + Misha from SIATCup will be there to talk all things tea…and believe us, they know their leaves!
This is sure to be a sell out feast + seats are limited so get in quick…’cos it’s great value for 10 x dishes. Grab friends, colleagues, tea + foodie heads or even your neighbour like we did!
10 x dishes $65pp and they all have one thing in common…CHESTNUTS. It’s all part of our Ladro 10 year birthday celebration of 10 Feasts, each with 10 Dishes. We want to showcase all our amazing suppliers and [FOL’s] Friends Of Ladro and share it all with you!
If you missed Feast #1 Truffles, be sure not to miss this one and make sure you bring an empty belly!
10 x DISHES – $65pp Matched Beverages – Chestnut beer/wine/ liqueur – +$35pp TUESDAY 20th AUGUST @ 7pm Ladro Greville – 162 Greville St Prahran BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL
HAPPY 10th BIRTHDAY LADRO Ingrid + Sean, original owners of Ladro, invite you to join them in celebrating 10 YEARS of Ladro! [They’re older than they look!!!]
They are planning a pretty awesome line up dinners [and some lunches] called 10 X 10 X 10 – yep, 10 feasts, each with 10 dishes, for 10 years of Ladro…all showcasing our favourite + best-est, ever-est producers and suppliers…yippeeee!
#1 is timed perfectly to showcase the fledgling truffle season in Australia…THE TRUFFLE FEAST.
TRUFFLES by the awesome Truffle Hound VINO by the ever cool Distillery Works
Be sure to book early as when you’re paying $2500 a kg for truffles, this 10 dish feast is a bargain and places are limited.
Join us for the 2nd ever PIZZA FESTIVAL on Wednesday 12th June.
$20 = PIZZA + VINO / BIRRA
Keep the Winter chills at bay + be sure to book a table for one, or for all! We are only 1 of 12 pizzerias in Melbourne to be invited to cook up a storm for the festival so we are just a little bit excited. Some keen folk are even eating southside then heading northside for maximum pizza festivities.
It was truly inspiring and a great pleasure to do a ‘trade’ with photographic guru Shantanu Starrick from The Pixel Trade. You’ll see some of the fine photos Shantanu shot on his website and we’ll be posting them through out the year. He was also kind enough to rustle together this cool little 45 second movie of Oscare making one of our biggest selling pizza’s…The Putanesca…from dough ball to table via the 450deg wood fired oven. Hmmm, just watching it makes us hungry all over again. Watch the 45 movie and feel free to share! Ladro ‘Sweet 45’ Movie
Ladro and Il Fornaio invite you to join us for a 10 dish feast showcasing hand-made cheeses by Sabrina and Katia, the Il Fornaio sisters. The sisters will make mozzarella at the dinner and Ladro Chef Niko will be using it in a dish!
