Luke Mangan and BridgeClimb Take Dining to New Heights On Sydney Harbour Bridge’s First Pop-Up Restaurant
On Wednesday 12th October, Australian restaurateur Luke Mangan took on the role of top chef, serving three of his culinary masterpieces at the first ever pop-up restaurant on the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Serving three bite-size courses, 134 metres above the harbour, Mangan, who this month became the first chef in the world to have his food on planes, trains, ships and shore, now proudly adds The Sydney Habour Bridge to his impressive restaurant location repertoire.
Mangan handpicked and specially customised three of his signature dishes to meet BridgeClimb’s stringent safety requirements: Luke’s Signature Kingfish Sashimi, Organic egg crab omelette, enoki mushroom & herb salad, miso mustard broth, and Australian Lamingtons.
Mangan said “It’s been a massive few months for my team and I, with our restaurants now officially found on planes, trains, ships and shore across 5 countries… with that in mind, it only seems fitting to now also take our food to the top of Australia’s iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge! Showcasing Australia’s finest produce via our signature dishes most definitely compliments this amazing view of our beautiful city!”
Jin Zexin from Guangzhou, China, a Sydney resident of 6 years, and Samantha Strachan from Jervis Bay, NSW were invited to enjoy some of Australia’s best food and best views.
Zexin said at the summit, “This is the most incredible dinning experience. Each of the three courses were unbelievably delicious and I can’t imagine a more breathtaking view or more Australian location to enjoy this moment from.”
BridgeClimb, who has hosted famous chefs including British chefs Jamie Oliver and Willie Harcourt-Cooze and Indian’s Sanjeev Kapoor on Climbs, was delighted to invite Luke Mangan to take up the unprecedented role and demonstrate the sky-high possibilities to tailor the Bucket List experience.
This is BridgeClimb’s second venture into the culinary space, following The Canape Climb; a tailored experience inviting corporate groups to scale the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and taste specially created catering delights at the summit.
