It was a night of new adventures: the introduction of Paul Louis champagne to Melbourne socialites, and a glimpse at Chris Lucas' new Korean bbq eatery, Kong. Guests got a lot of the former (including a take-home bottle of bubbles) but less of the latter, since Kong is still a few weeks away from opening. Still, tasty morsels including kingfish sashimi, Mandu dumplings and clam miso soup left party-goers wanting more. And who wasn't swayed by the Paul Louis representation, a gentleman who offered champagne amidst a haze of soap bubbles as guests arrived? Watch this space.
