But what if we told you that you don’t have to rely on rehearsed conversations anymore? We have partnered with The School of Life to create Conversation Menus, bespoke menus designed to ignite meaningful conversations and cultivate connections. 

Each menu contains a curated set of questions aimed at sparking engaging conversations. Whether you’re a first-time dater, friends, partners, families, or even strangers sharing a meal together, we have got you covered.

Get ready to dive into the delicious world of conversation with each menu containing 12 thought-provoking questions, each categorised into starter, main course, and dessert, designed to dig deep and create opportunities for genuine connections and memorable conversations that go beyond small talk.

The menus are available every Thursday from 25th May through to 29th June, at select locations throughout The Yards, including Miscusi, Badiani, Gura Gura, and Stanfords. If you wish to join in, just inform a staff member at participating locations that you would like a Conversation Menu of your preference and start talking!

So, next time you find yourself struggling to keep the conversation flowing, try one of The Yards’ Conversation Menus. You never know what meaningful connections or memorable moments may come from it!
