Networking is awkward for me. Yes, big, Fijian smile aside, I’m crazy-awkward on the inside. 
Thankfully, a few of my friends always let me know when they’re going so that we can book tickets together. Kat Cazanis is one of them. We’ve been eying the Meet & Eat events for a while and it’s usually super hard to book a ticket so we jumped on this one.

The Press Club is super fine dining and I understand it usually has a larger proportion of men than women. If you know me, you know I don’t really do suits and I don’t do that much fine dining. So this already had me a little nerve wrecked (phase 1).

Kat and I caught up the week before and after a chat with her, I realised it could be a super-fab idea to give some jars of granola (the ones we did for Valentine’s Day) to the women at Meet & Eat. Helped that I had about 50 jars as well. So I got in touch with Justine at Meet & Eat and she was gracious and helped me out with the labels and permission.

So.

To summarise.

Nervous Kish + Engaging Kat + Supportive Justine = Great marketing for Kish+Co + Delicious Granola for 50 Delicious Woman = NOICE.

Please don’t tell me you’re just waiting for the food pictures? So predictable.

The menu was a set one, I chose all the vegetarian options. Below is the Greek salad. Yes, The Press Club’s take on Greek salad. I can see how many can find this bewildering, however, I quite enjoyed it. It was really beautiful and the combination of the little rock thingees with what I’m guessing was yoghurt, was amaze. (Yes, I’m not a food critic and I don’t pretend to be).

I guess when I looked it at, I was thinking there are quite a few colours going on and I think I would have aligned some of the elements to the left (if you’re a designers, you will get this, if not, don’t worry).

I’m not a pasta person. I just find it overwhelming in my belly, so to be honest, I was a bit nervous before the ravioli came. 
When it came, I was relieved. And amazing. This was probably my favourite dish, looking back, I don’t even remember what was in it, but the proportion size was PERFECT and it was divine. I feel like going back. Right Now.

How could you not order the chocolate mousse option if there is a chocolate mousse option? 
Actually, as I write this, I’m wondering how the reviews for The Press Club are so low and how I enjoyed it so much?!
The food was divine and service was excellent.

Some of my newly made friends got the cheese platter. I felt bad for them (even though I felt the layout and design were beautiful and the solid block of yellow was a bold move), but I couldn’t bear to share my mousse. #guilty

Would I go back? I’d probably check the vegetarian menu first, but yes. 
I got home and I said to Vivek “Honey (I actually say Sweetie, but it sounds embarrassing out loud), I think we should do fine dine a bit more. The proportion sizes really suit and the food tastes fresh and perfect.”

So may have just started to convert the cheap-eats lover into a fine-dine one? Just maybe.

If you’re here cause you just read the post, we’re also a design studio. (Which is why Kish writes about aesthetics).

We’d love to work with you. If you like what you’re about to hear, we’ll probably get along just fine.
We’ve worked with one-man-bands, multinational companies and with Kish’s dad too (he’s been our toughest client yet).
It’s about those coffees when we’ve got our notepads out, sketching ideas and talking thoughts.
How a business gets from A to Z with awesome design as the wireframe that supports it.
You might not be able to shrug us off because we’re in it for the long haul.
The growing part is as much yours as it is ours.

 

Let’s do a coffee.
