John Newman - Luncheon 26 November 2019


A self-confessed Walter Mitty figure, John Newman has been part of Melbourne's entertainment scene for decades and with wife Tikki, built something of an empire that is now in the hands of the next generation of Newmans. Many will have witnessed the spectacle of Dracula's Theatre Restaurant over the years and at the Spring luncheon, guests enjoyed learning about his journey through the industry.


The November luncheon featured a new Tripe-based entree and main course (below) designed by the fine chefs of the RACV Club, alternating with the traditional main dish and followed by an array of cheese and refreshments.
