The answer to life, the universe and everything (if you don’t know this reference please Google) is not 42. Rather it is the Red Lantern family. Last night it was such a privilege to join in the first birthday celebrations of Red Lantern on Riley. The friends that were gathered, the energy in the room, the genuine hospitality of celebrity Chef Luke Nguyen, the spirituality of wise warrior woman his sister Pauline Nguyen, made the party about so much more than just the food and drinks. Not that they weren’t super duper delicious – of course they were. A thoughtful progression of canapés – lobster in witlof was the bomb – cocktails and Champagne kept the conversation flowing.
While Red Lantern on Crown has been feeding Sydney for ten years, congratulations to Red Lantern on Riley – with its French Indo-Chinese décor and modern Vietnamese food – on its first birthday. Hoan hô !
