Ben Milgate and Elvis Abrahanowicz of Sydney’s Porteno take the reins at High Street’s Vivace for one amazing night where Argentinean BBQ meets Auckland dining institution as part of Restaurant Month in the BIG little City 2013.

Ben and Elvis bring their Argentinean BBQ and rockabilly styles to Auckland for what’s set to be one of the most unique events on the Restaurant Month calendar. Enjoy a wine around the fire while you watch the theatre of meat slow cooking over open flames, this will be a dining event to remember.

Recently listed as the city’s ‘it’ chefs by Sydney Morning Herald, Ben and Elvis have been the sweethearts of the Sydney dining scene since opening Bodega in 2006. The 2010 opening of Argentinean BBQ style restaurant Porteno followed with more accolades including Best New Restaurant from Time Out, Gourmet Traveler and the Sydney Morning Herald, who also awarded the boys 2 Chefs Hats and Best Chefs 2013.

A Taste of Porteno at Vivace is part of Restaurant Month 2013’s International Chef Dining Series, with some of the best chefs from around the world hosted by some of Auckland’s most accomplished establishments.

The event organisers, Lemongrass Productions, would also like to thank the official suppliers of Restaurant Month: Silver Fern Farms, Nautilus Estate, Villa Maria and Singapore Airlines.
