Eat & Drink

Faro has all the usual stuff you’d expect from a European inspired bar in a museum wing named after a Greek lighthouse: share plates galore, whipped up by Executive Chef Vince Trim and his compadres, as well as our signature sangria by the glass or litre, black margaritas, feral pig eyes encased in ice balls (on request when available), a pig-slicing machine, bodacious design details and thirteen-metre high ceilings… It’s all a bit overwhelming. Which is the point: ‘It’s barely controlled chaos,’ says David Walsh, Mona owner and Faro bar fly.

It also has four new works by James Turrell, renowned light wrangler and cattle rancher. You can order these off the menu when available (take your jamón ibérico with a side of neural battering). Or, go the whole hog and treat yourself to Art + Dinner: pay $25 when you book to guarantee your restaurant reservation and receive exclusive entry to Unseen Seen and Weight of Darkness throughout the evening.
