Celebrating the new issue with an intimate evening at glass brasserie, Luke Mangan’s Hilton haven.
Few places could be more suited to ring in Museum’s High Flying issue than The Hilton hotel, iconic home-away-from-home for the world’s leisure set. On Tuesday evening, a crowd of party-goers—from contributors to designers and friends—gathered in The Hilton’s Sydney building (up the stairs to level three). At Glass’ long bar, guests dined on canapé-sized offerings plucked from Luke Mangan’s menu, with the leading chef dropping by to join the festivities. There were tempura oysters with wakame and wasabi dressing, Peking duck pancakes and Kingfish sashimi (served with ginger, eschallot and Persian feta). The mushroom arancini went very fast, as tends to happen with arancini wherever it’s served. Every guest was gifted a copy of the issue, choosing either Sloan Laurits’ fashion cover, with model Sibui Nazarenko, or the limited edition John Booth illustration. When it was too hard to choose, they simply took both.
