Winter Warmers - A seafood provenance journey!
This winter we'd love you to come join us on Tuesday nights as we explore some of the sensational seafood our local primary producers have to offer at the peak of their seasons! Limited space is available in our restaurant so make sure you get in quick as soon as tickets become available:
Tuesday 21st July 2015
Join us for an exploration of the Belgian classic moules-frites through the wonderful world of Spring Bay mussels from Tasmania accompanied by Mountain Goat Beers from right here in Richmond!
Spring Bay Seafoods produce some of the finest Blue Mussels in Australia, framing them suspended on long lines at depths of up to 35 metres and in a constant current of between 1–3 knots. They are of premium quality because in Tasmania we are fortunate to have some of the purest, coldest water in the world. Mountain Goat have collected a swag of awards over the years for their tasty, all natural ales. At Richmond Oysters, we have their fabulous Steam Ale and Indian Pale Ale on tap. For this night, we'll be opening up a few extra ones too!
5 courses of mussels: $40pp
5 courses of mussels w. beer: $65pp

Join us for a gluttony of chowder, sampling four classic styles paired with a range of Brokenwood wines from the Hunter Valley and Beechworth. Our four course chowder night starts with the house favourite recipe rich with seafood marinara, before embarking on a journey through the New England classic clam chowder, a sweet corn and crab chowder and concluding with a chunky Canadian scallop and pea chowder.
Enjoy with warm crusty bread & butter, with any luck Melbourne will even offer us a cold rainy night to enhance every blissful mouthful!

Everybody enjoys a good story, and when it comes to our food too often the story is hidden or hard to find. We'd like to share with you the story of our favourite snapper fishermen out of the small fishing village of Leigh in New Zealand. Over several courses of the freshest snapper available on the market, sustainably caught by our friendly cousins in the waters off the north island, experience some of the best the ocean has to offer!
