There have been some pretty exciting things cooking in the kitchens of Bivacco, with the Viaduct Harbour favourite having just announced the addition of a number of mouthwatering, new winter dishes to its menu. Harnessing the best seasonal produce, Bivacco’s talented team has created options that promise to soothe any and all winter blues, marrying warm, hearty comfort food with succulent, roasted meats and seasonal takes on seafood.
Highlights include small starter dishes like Lemon Stracciatella served with charred leeks, dill pickle and leek ash, a beautiful Tuna Crudo with horseradish, cucumber, apple and dill, and a Grilled Tigelle, which is Italian-style flatbread, served with whipped parmesan and basil.
Larger dishes include an indulgent Beef Cheek Rotolo with Lion’s Mane, nasturtium and a tasty mushroom sauce and a Havoc Farm Pork Chop, with poached quince, wholegrain mustard and bitter leaves. Elsewhere, vegetarians will love the Roast Crown Pumpkin, served with spiced honey, black garlic and yoghurt.
And if all that wasn’t enough, Bivacco is upping the ante on its beloved weekday Aperitivo Hour, which runs every week from Monday to Friday, from 4pm until 6pm. There, guests will be treated to complimentary bites and drinks specials (including two delicious new Martini Spritz that we think are the perfect way to end the work day) and, on Fridays, will enjoy the convivial atmosphere created by Bivacco’s resident DJ, playing the perfect soundtrack to the start of the weekend.
So if you’ve been thinking about booking a table at Bivacco, now’s the time. Not only could you be one of the first to sample its seriously delicious new menu, but if the weather is nice (and you keep your eye on the Bivacco Instagram), you could secure yourself and your party one of the venue’s coveted outdoor tables — now able to be booked exclusively online here (weather dependant).
