The Executive Chef and Owner of Melbourne’s famed Farmer’s Daughter will open Latin-American eatery Morena in November.
Morena will find its home in the historic GPO building in Martin Place, in the former Intermezzo space.
The 220-seat venue will see Saravia draw on his heritage with dishes from Peru as well as from Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, Argentina, and Brazil.
“I am so excited to open Morena in the heart of Sydney. With this new venue we will be elevating the way Sydneysiders engage with the diverse cuisines from across Latin-American cultures,” says Saravia.
“We aim to transform Australians’ perspective of Latin-American cuisines, showcasing the diverse culinary heritage beyond just street food, all while preserving the rich cultural roots and authentic flavours that define it.”
Saravia’s focus on working with and showcasing local producers will continue at Morena, and will be complemented by authentic ingredients from across Latin America.
The drinks offering is also set to carry the Latin-American theme with wines from Spain and South America, plus cocktails featuring spirits from the area.
Saravia is known for spearheading the Peruvian food scene in Australia, with the opening of Farmer’s Daughter in Melbourne, and sister venue Victoria by Farmer’s Daughter in Federation Square.
Morena is set to open in November at 1 Martin Place, Sydney.
