Foxtel Launches New Restaurant In Lead Up To AFL Season
As the 2023 Toyota AFL Premiership Season looms, FOXTEL has launched its new restaurant experience, Forkaye, in celebration of its unbeatable 4K Ultra HD viewing experience.
Offering a blend of fine-dining and footy fandom, the restaurant pays homage to FOXTEL’s advanced 4K Ultra HD technology, which enables viewers to enjoy every game of every round live in 4K Ultra HD resolution.
The restaurant experience was launched by Fox Footy host Sarah Jones, expert analyst David King, and Fox Footy General Manager Michael Neill.
At the launch, guests were immersed in a sensory environment featuring the sounds of sideline commentary and cheering footy crowds, along with waiters dressed in footy attire.
Forkaye offers a one-of-a-kind premium footy feed, complete with a four ‘quarse’ menu prepared by Matthew Butcher, a renowned restaurateur and loyal Carlton supporter.
The menu begins with a sea of red as ‘Sherrin’ platters of footy-inspired finger food are served to the guests, followed by a new item served in every quarter.
Commenting on the restaurant, Butcher, said: “Footy and food, you can’t get much better than that.”
“Years of experience in heading to the G’ and watching the Blues whilst eating the stadium food has given me a lot of inspiration.
“I’ve enjoyed taking the traditional footy fare and adding some fine dining touches to create an incredible four quarse menu, all while watching the matches in 4K Ultra-HD,” he said.
Jones, added: “It’s incredibly exciting to be kicking off footy season with a bang.”
“There’s truly no better way to watch a match than with an ultimate pub feed with a twist, in good company.
“The experience ‘Forkaye’ delivers is unmatched, and Melburnians will certainly enjoy it as the season kicks off,” she said
Guests can also Go Ultra from March 16th to March 18th by entering a draw to win a double pass to the Forkaye restaurant experience.
The winners will get to enjoy the immersive atmosphere of the restaurant, along with the enhanced Dolby Digital sound that FOXTEL’s 4K Ultra HD technology offers.
